I made it to the registration page finally but when I submit it just gives me either a system error or page not loaded. :(

Microsoft will probably scratch this offer now that millions of people are going to sign up for it (just like that thumbdrive offer a few months ago).

Yeah no kidding, that will suck *knocks on wood*

@jafoman

Just keep trying, it seriously took me about 2 hours of reloading/resubmitting while watching TV, but it finally went through correctly.

Now if someone could tell me the main difference between Ultimate and business that would be great. I was going to order Technet later this week but if there isnt that much of a difference then Ill stick with the free biz. thanks

Here is a website that shows all the different vista versions and what the features are.

The webcasts won't work for me if I click "view" but it works if I click download for offline viewing, will it still count if I click the offling viewing and open in WMP?

Yep. Same for me, the videos won't work unless I view them offline.

Can someone tell me what constitutes as actually "finishing" the videos? Can you simply scroll to the end of the video, or do you have to watch the entire thing?

Had to re-watch them. I just leave it in the background. When its done leave it for a couple of minutes and close it and it says complete.

So you don't have to fill out the survey they send you about each webcast then? ...because I kinda...um deleted them ;)

You would think Microsoft would learn by now...get a good set of servers which can handle the traffic. :)

Kind of amusing though all the same. I can't even get past the registration point after putting my company information in.
