Microsoft giving out 777 copies of Windows 7

If you live in one lucky town in the Netherlands you have a chance to get a free copy of Windows 7. Microsoft will be giving out 777 copies of Windows 7 to the town of Zevenhuizen, which translates to "Seven Houses".

The lucky residents will be getting a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate. There are a few restrictions however; the user must be in possession of a PC with Windows as the primary OS, Mac users will not be able to obtain a free copy, and Linux users are out of luck too.

Residents can go to "zevenhuizengaatover.nl. The site explains that there are four options to choose from for getting Windows 7: pick up a copy, bring the computer over to have it installed, have Microsoft come pick up the PC and bring it back with everything installed within 48 hours, or have Microsoft install it for them at home."

As Microsoft continues towards the Windows 7 launch date, they are looking to promote the new OS in any possible way. Keep your eyes peeled as you may be able to win yourself a free copy from Microsoft too!
