FREE copies of Windows Vista and Office for UK developers


...all you have to do is attend the Vista/Office launch event for developers were such leading visionaries in the world of technology like Mike Taulty, Martin Parry, Daniel Moth, Mike Ormond and lesser known ones like me will be presenting.

Ian Moulster has the details:

  • We will be giving 1000 copies of Windows Vista Ultimate, and 1000 copies of Office Professional 2007 to developers who take part in our online launch event
  • What do we mean by “take part”? On Friday 19th January we will broadcast the keynote live, then make all of the technical sessions available for viewing online at the same time as they’re happening here at our office in Reading. You don’t need to register to watch or download these. At some point on Friday 19th we’ll open up a registration site for the software giveaway – in order to be eligible people will have to answer one question relating to the Windows Vista track (to be in line for a copy of Windows Vista) and one relating to the Office track (to be in line for a copy of Office). While the questions are fairly easy if you’ve watched the sessions, they will be difficult if you haven’t. Assuming you answer the question correctly, and are one of the first 1000 people to do so, you’ll get a free copy. Obviously if you answer both questions correctly and are one of the first 1000 of each, you could get both products
  • What are the caveats? Not many: You need to have a UK address for us to ship the product to, and we’ll only ship the product when we have it, which could be some time after January (ie it won’t be immediate). Other fairly standard T&Cs apply.

Sounds like a steal to me! (Anyone wishing to give bribes for the answers please send cheques to Mark Johnston, My House, UK, UK1 1MS - that's a joke btw!!)

Tell your UK developer friends, blog about it, attend the event.

    So does that means only online viewers can get hold of the vista copy not if u are attending the launch in person.

    Attendees to the physical launch will get a choice of either Windows Vista Ultimate, or Office Professional 2007 (but not both). These will be shipped to the attendee after the event.
