So, in theory they are both 64bit keys?

they are more "hybrid" keys... the keys are not tied to the architecture but the version "windows 7 ultimate vs professional or windows 8 pro vs windows 8"

Just finished loading up Windows 8 x64 on my laptop with Classic Shell and all my IDEs and apps i had in Windows 7, plus i upgraded to a new Intel solid state drive, man this thing boots fast, cold boot is < 5 seconds even with all of the additional services and startup apps!

I can confirm with 100% certainty that a Windows 8 32bit key is able to activate the 64bit version of Windows 8. The same licensing system was used for Windows 7 and it’s nice to see Microsoft hasn’t changed it.

Additionally, Windows 8 professional is now available on valid Dreamspark accounts.

Enjoy Windows 8.

Jack.
