Stated from the Vista EULA:
13. UPGRADES. To use upgrade software, you must first be licensed for the software that is eligible
for the upgrade. Upon upgrade, this agreement takes the place of the agreement for the software
you upgraded from. After you upgrade, you may no longer use the software you upgraded from.
Holy **** I didn't know that. Actually I think my boss told me that a while ago... But anyways that's M$
