    Does the spyware come with the copy of Vista? Meaning can you do as you said and have the spyware on one computer and a clean legal copy of Vista on another?

    I think you got it a bit backwards, spyware comes free with Vista and is a "product feature" :p

    Hmm Vista for "free".. Dunno about that. If you ask me, nothing is "free" in this world.

    2 ways to take that the other is so you don't fake the info sent to them.

    Actually, the program is still going... However, if you signed up on dec 11th after 2PM PST (5PM EST, 10PM GMT) you will not get free software. You will exchange your privacy for the warm feeling in your heart for helping Microsoft out.

    If you send an email to the WFP email address, you'll get an autoreply with an FAQ. The first question is the free goodies part.

    they're looking for something that's easy to share with them, but difficult for us to translate and interpret.
