Neowin give-away: Windows 7 Ultimate

Windows 7 launched last week and we held a little launch party with some other Windows bloggers. At that time we gave away a total of 12 copies to some lucky people in New York City. You can see a video of the lucky winners below.

Not everyone lives in New York though so this time around we are giving away a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate to one lucky winner no matter where you are in the world.

It's simple to enter, just do the following:

  1. If you don't have a Twitter account, sign up at Twitter.com
  2. Checkout our Tweet and Re-tweet it (or copy and paste the message in full into a new tweet of your own)
  3. Make sure you are following @NeowinFeed on Twitter
  4. We will announce the lucky winner tomorrow at 14:00 GMT
If you hate Twitter or do not wish to take part then do not fear as we will have other competitions around Windows 7 and different ways to enter. Good luck!

Update: Lunamonkey was our lucky Windows 7 winner this time. Stay tuned for future give-aways!

Thanks to Bryant of AeroXperience for recording the winners video

So, we should stop visiting Neowin.net for news, and start using twitter and facebook now? Thanks but no thanks.

Agreed. I'm sick of seeing Neowin clogging up my FB feed with some of the most boring and useless news around. I would much rather see big news on FB, not everything they can possibly find.

Wow...I don't really touch Twitter at all but after a few curious clicks I've noticed something. A lot of accounts on Twitter are nothing but contest spamming tweeters.

I pretty much hate Twitter, but I'll do this.

However, I thought Neowin was better than this, this is like a mass spam tactic.

Heh, this is fun!

Thanks Neowin for giving us great news and this cool chance to win Win7. Twitter is though; a bit confusing and Facebook is not really my thing - maybe make more channels so we can support you.

You can always download a Twitter client and use their built in tool to retweet. :)

I used Tweetdeck to do mine. It also organizes them for ya.

Well i retweeted because the copies of windows 7 I purchased was a hoax and i got robbed!!! and because I love Neowin*

I absolutely despise twitter... and already have 2 copies of Ultimate and a copy of Pro... so no thanks, maybe the next round!

nope, you've just directed your tweet to only @NeowinFeed and not the masses

RT @theirusername message
or
their message (via @theirusername)

and I supplied another one which is office building on a big boulevard (and there is always option from picking it from DHL's office). Nevermind, this just means the competition is not international.

This should have been in PMs

The competitions ARE international though. Tom successfully shipped my prize to me last year without any hassle. It's unfortunate whatever happened in your case though.

I'm game. I already had a Twitter account I mainly used to follow eVga anyways, so I might as well put the account to better use!

created a twitter account because thats how Aion Online does its updates and crap. might as well use it for something else.

i did what i guess is a re-tweet, so hopefully ill win as im still using RC

That's understandable. We understand a lot of people don't wish to but this is just 1 of many give-aways so I'm sure you can participate in another one in the future. Thanks

Sorry but I don't think I'm going to create a Twitter account just for this...

Why didn't you already have a Twitter account? Did you create a Neowin account just to post that you weren't going to make a Twitter account?

My guess, based entirely on my own feelings so it could be wrong, is that he doesn't wish to participate in the narcissistic lameness that is Twitter.

Edit: Although, in the interest of full disclosure, I do enjoy tweetingtoohard.com. I often wonder how those people can move under the weight of their own ego.

+1!

yeah, the heck with Twitter.

a copy of Windows 7 would be nice but considering the slim chance to win and we have to use Twitter to do it. it's just not worth it.

Agree... A physical copy of windows 7 would be nice... Though i would dare not touch twitter for any reason... Just out of my own respect being drained form my key strokes
