buying windows vista
I was looking on newegg to purchase a copy of windows vista. Below are two
links and I was wondering which one I would need. I don't understand what
the difference is. I am looking for a full version of windows vista.

This one is OEM.

This one is full retail (not upgrade).

OEM versions have a restricted license and are tied to the hardware on which
they are originally installed. Retail versions have no such restrictions.
