Free is free. I got it through a MS promotion at http://www.powertogether.com/ You needed to watch 3 demos of the "Power of Vista". Meh. All I did was let the webinar run in the background with the audio off on my computer. That being said I won't load this thing until there is solid support in bootcamp on my MacBook Pro or until I build a new Core 2 Duo Extreme desktop this summer. Whichever comes first. Desktop probably won't go Vista ever since the release Candidates that I tried had a MASSIVE headache with bittorrent. I foresee Vista sitting on the shelf collecting dust for a while though. Anyone else get in on this offer? I know that it was widely publicized a few months back and they handed out something like 30,000 I think. Love or hate Windows *shrugs* You can't beat free. PS- I've earned it huh. Why do I get this image of wallowing through a swage pipe like in Shawshank redemption?
