This was a deal on powertogether.com that allowed signups for only like 2 - 3 days and then they were all out.

I thought about doing that, but I'll be ****ed if it gets close to activation time and my copy hasn't arrived.

Actually, you can technically (and legally) reset Vista's activation period for 90 to 120(can't remember) days. There's a command for this.

To get more trial days do this.

1. Hit Winkey+R

2. Write "slmgr.vbs -rearm" without ""

3. Wait about 40 seconds

4. Restart

Ok got my two Congratulations e-mails, but I am skeptical and worried about submitting the w-9 form with my social security number on it. Is this offer really true and legit?

Watch out for Windows Vista phishing scams

You may have seen some variation of an e-mail message that promises that you can download Windows Vista now. This is spam--and a kind of scam known as "phishing" that is designed to steal your personal information. You should never click links in e-mail messages or respond to a message with sensitive information when you're unsure of the source. For more information, see this article.

Dear Mr. X:

Congratulations, you?ve learned how to build well-connected, visually stunning applications with Windows Vista, and now your free, full-licensed copy of Windows Vista Business is on its way.

Please be patient. We cannot ship your gift until Windows Vista Business is released to manufacturing. Your free software should arrive in six to eight weeks after RTM.

I have plans to upgrade to Ultimate anyway so how does this upgrade work via the Business version and how much would it cost?

I thought Office was a download... the confirmation for Office implies that it is going to be shipped.

Yea, I got my email too. Just wondering, I am eligible for both but want only 1 that is Windows Vista Business. How would they decide which one to give out first. If I do only one I dont need to fill out the W9 I guess. And I am happy with windows Vista business only. Any idea anyone. :whistle:

I have wondered (this is kind of off topic but) if you use the anytime upgrade thing and then reformat and reinstall your OS do you lose the upgrade and have to pay again? Has MS said anything about this yet?

No, you do not lose your upgrade. The new license is stored on an MS server in your 'digital locker'. You can't install your upgraded version directly though; so when you reformat you have to install the original version and run anytime upgrade again.

I just got this e-mail also.

I wasn't expecting anything after they sent that first batch of e-mails out. I take it they ran out of the first supply and now they got more so they're sending out more?

Got the email yesterday as well. From what the email says, it looks like they are going to -ship- Office 2007. Ah well, as long as I get it either way.

Can anyone confirm that Office 2007 really going to be shipped or downloaded?

On the other hand...

I’ve received my Microsoft Office 2007 gift in the mail. Why did you use a download for Office 2007 and not a physical disc?

Due to the heavy demands on Microsoft to produce on-the-shelf retail product for stores it is not always possible to get physical discs made so close to a product launch. We wanted to make sure you didn’t have to wait so we decided to provide you with the product via download rather than wait for a physical DVD.

From the way it sounds, we'll be getting information on Office 2007 in our mail, telling us how to download it? o.O?
