Want to win some goodies? Share your Windows 8 Story

Windows 8 is a bit of a paragon for Microsoft and the PC world. While it’s performance and under the hood improvements are there for all to see and feel, the interface and removal of the Start Button/Menu has riled a lot of people.

So what better way to celebrate the first four months of the OS’ release than by giving away some goodies! The catch? You need to make a video of yourself, sharing your personal Windows 8 story. The official blurb from Microsoft is “we want you to show us what you love to do and how Windows 8 is helping you do it.”

We’re sure there are many people that can justify their use of Windows 8, but Microsoft seem to be upping the ante by asking you for videos of you getting the best out of their OS. Once you’ve made the video, you need to visit the contest’s Facebook page to enter. Although you do have to be a resident of the US to be eligable. After that, it’s up to you to promote your video and get family and friends to vote for it.

So, what can you lucky people win? When people vote, you can unlock up to $50,000 worth of prizes that include:

  • A trip to March Madness
  • ORIGIN BIG O Gaming PC and touch-screen monitor
  • Surface Pros
  • A trip for two to a New York City Artist#Talk event
  • Windows 8 gear

So, do you tear up the dance floor as a DJ or, like the little girl in the Windows 8 advert, create masterpieces for all to see? If you do, Microsoft wants to hear from you. You might just bag a few goodies in the process!
