Get Vista & Office for Free, Just For Watching Webcasts

Want a free copy of Windows Vista and Office 2007? Got a few hours to kill? More like 6 hours to be exact. If you don't mind jumping through a few hoops to get it Microsoft is offering up free copy's of Vista Business or Office 2007 Pro just for watching a couple of Microsoft propaganda videos.

All you've got to do is register at Power Together, and "participate in at least three (3) qualifying web casts and/or virtual lab sessions within 30 days of registration," and then, 6-8 weeks after that, you'll apparently get a real, licensed DVD in the mail. Skeptical yeah I was too, I didn't really want to throw 6 hours down the tubes for nothing. But I've seen the post on several well known sites as well as on Microsoft's own Channel 9 blog by Mark Brown, a Microsoft developer and platform marketing employee, who confirms that this odd website is his doing.

These webcasts aren't really meant for the average user, more so for programmers and the sort and they are dull and rather boring even to a technophile like me . Personally I was bored after the first one, which by the way was the shortest of the three I chose at a mere 54mins. However if in the end it means a freebie copy of the latest great Microsoft has to offer then what the heck, lets try it out.

**Please not the site is very slow today from experiencing high traffic, I recommend waiting a day or two to allow for some of the congestion to subside**
