You didn't need to complete them before - as long as you signed up before, you would get it.

And why can't people calm down - 6-8 weeks have been mentioned several times - theres absolutely no need to keep asking, before february.

You hope as long as its not first come, first served on the mailing lists..

They posted on the site that if you already registered to finish your web casts. Anyone that got in before they slammed the door is good.

I just got a email back from them saying that it will be 6-8 weeks after the end of Jan... :(

Actually that will work out perfect for those who qualified! That will give the driver developers more time to fix some any issues that come up for 32/64bit, applications to be updated for 32/64bit, and any popular games that require updating can hopefully be addressed soon in that time frame.

I was wondering what I was going to do, install 32 or 64bit. But if I have 6-8 weeks after the end of Jan that should provide plenty of time for stable/reliable 64bit drivers and patches to be produced for major applications/games.

Or am I just dreaming... guess that is always a possibility!

It will ship after the paying customers at MSDN get theirs and not a day sooner.

MSDN shipment will go out January 11th.

So expect yours on or about January 30Th

I get the feeling they actually meant " released to retail " so I'm not going to get excited. Would be a nice surprise if it showed up next week :)

Very exciting to get the package. I appreciate MS offering this promo telecast to get Vista out. Very little difference between Business and Ultimate. Thanks MS. Looking forward to installing during those cold Winter months.

I wish Microsoft would do a grass-roots campaign with the more media centric versions of Vista. I want Vista Home Premium/Ultimate!

And the hundreds of CD's in those boxes..

I probably missed this along the line somewhere, but has it been checked out that all these different versions of Vista aren't all embeded into the same package. There is so very little difference between business and utimate and the others.
