I got an interesting e-mail from a dotTechie today (Emrys). The e-mail was a forward of an e-mail Emrys received from Microsoft encouraging Emrys to “throw a house party” and receive free Windows 7 in return. After I finished pouting about the fact that I was not invited, I looked into it. Interesting to say the least:
So… you throw a party and you get Windows 7 for free? Sounds like a plan.
What makes this throw-a-party-get-Windows-7-free even better is it is open to people living in 12 countries: Australia, Italy, Canada, Japan, Mexico, France, Spain, Germany, USA, Hong Kong, UK, and India.
For people interested, here is a little bit more detailed information:
