Announcing the Windows 7 partner video contest from the Windows Commercial Marketing Team, now open to Microsoft  partners to participate in and running until July 3, 2009 where you can win a Dell Latitude E4300 Windows 7 laptop (or equivalent) and have your video (read below before asking, “what video?”) shown at this year’s Worldwide Partner Conference in New Orleans! Ok, let’s talk about those videos I mentioned…


We want to hear about your experience with Windows 7 RC, why it excites you, and the opportunities it opens for you and your business. As such, we invite you to showcase your Windows 7 RC experience in a brief, 2-3 minute video that you create.
