Can we know your desktop and current operating system? (Not all computers can run Windows 7) Whoops just saw your Sig. You can run Windows 7
How it works is you can use it till March I believe, and after that you will either have to buy a product key and activate, or your computer will just first shut down at intervals, and eventually your computer will not let you log on until you either buy a product key, or go back to a different operating system.
Also once you install the full version of Windows 7, it will be like installing an OS, all your files and stuff will get deleted (Unless you backup of course)
It will be just like using a recovery CD, so remember to backup!
EDIT: If I was you, I would go for the 64 bit OS.
It is the same price, and you have room for future RAM upgrades, I don't see why you would want a 32 bit OS.
