    There is a catch:

    In other words, you have to install spyware, have it for 3 months with a live internet connection, and get your free software.

    I guess it is worth a try. A free copy of Vista never hurts.

    3 months of their WFP software running on my XP Home rig that normally isn't used (so no fear of an inpending format, lol ) for a free copy of Vista Ultimate sounds good imo. I signed up. I will just have to make sure to check my email, surf a little, answer any questionaires, etc. on this ole' Dell. :toast:

    i would be careful, could zombify your computer to use for ddos or other horrible things :(

    like google and yahoo constantly battling it out, they use ddos against each other but try to eliminate all traces of it ever coming from them

    Yes, it states so when you sign on. Still it looks relatively simple, and you get $400 software for free. That is the only way I am getting it :eek:.... and legally I don't do software piracy.

    Lets see who/how many participated in this. I did and I got my Mom to sign up also. We both selected Vista Ultimate. We signed up on Dec. 10th and it was like the next day the free software was no longer available. We have both gotten a few email from MS, last one saying to allow to the end of April for shipment. Are you fellow participators also getting anxious?

    My last email from them was on 3/28. It said: This message is to notify you that we are ready to ship your product. Please allow until end of April for delivery. You will receive another email from us when shipments have gone out.

    Ya, I've gotten the same emails you guys have described. They did say to wait until the end of April, and it isn't the end of April yet. I'm kinda hoping they send it AFTER finals (end of April for me) so I won't have another distraction from studying... :laugh:

    I participated and on 3/29/08 received my "last call for address changes" and those changes needed made by April 2nd. That is the last I heard from them.

    Okay, land of the free with a CATCH. hehehe. I wouldn't mess with that LINK, nothing is nearly like this anymore in this world unless there is a catch, just my 2 cents. :)
