For those who have all 3 webcasts completed, how long did it take to go from the "Pending" status to the "Completed" status for each one?

Uhh 6 -8 weeks AFTER THE COMMERCIAL launch.. thats january and on..

Just wondering where you saw this. The text I see says:

Don?t forget that after you?ve watched three Windows Vista Webcasts, you will receive a free, full-licensed copy of Windows Vista Business.

* Your gift will ship within 6-8 weeks after Windows Vista is released to manufacturing.

Vista was released to manufacturing a while ago...

Do you have to watch the whole videos, or can you skip to the end?

The thing is, even after all this, they still have to confirm that you are eligible... They can chose not to send it to you...

I ran them at 3x and just turned on mute while I was watching TV, it completed them just fine. I wouldn't directly skip to the end as it may check for that.

They delivered on Visual Studio 2005 when I put in a fake business, so I don't see it changing.

No Canada this time though :(.

for the people who completed this even though they don't have a business, do you think you did an unethical thing?

when they check if you have a business, what info do they ask for? if they ask for a telephone number, there might be a slight possibility that they are calling to confirm if the business is legit, that might be why they are taking so long. just an idea, i have no proof lol. that episode of seinfeld comes to mind when george wanted jerry to answer the phone "vandelay industries" or something lol

Exactly what does it mean when it says "pending"? I chose 3 webcasts to watch and they all say pending.

Did you actually watch the webcasts? After you watch the webcasts it displays "Pending" and then roughly 24 hours later the Pendings will be updated with Completed/Finished (I don't remember the exact wording).
