Get Windows 7 for free by hosting a launch party
Microsoft wants you to host your own Windows 7 Launch Party. In return, you’ll get a special Signature Edition of Windows 7 Ultimate and a Windows 7 Party Pack.
Microsoft is finally going to take advantage of the best form of advertising for the next release of Windows: word of mouth. The world’s largest software maker has partnered with House Party, apparently the world’s leading party organizer, to encourage technology enthusiasts to throw Windows 7 launch parties in their communities between October 22 and October 29.
Microsoft won’t let just anyone host such a party though; the company is being very selective. If you’re interested in becoming an official host, there’s an application process you’ll have to go through over at houseparty.com/windows7. Furthermore, the offer is only open to residents of 12 countries: Australia, Italy, Canada, Japan, Mexico, France, Spain, Germany, the US, Hong Kong, the UK, and India.
