i will be giving a way a free copy of Windows 7 within the next week, (just a product key)
I got a decent amount from Microsoft as a promo for the computer shop i work at we have ONE extra key so i figured why not, this forum has helped me a decent amount and kills time for me while i am at work.

Who ever wants to win it CAN NOT already have Windows 7.

PM me with a Message to why you want/need a copy of windows 7 and your system specs.(Does not have to be a super spec computer, i just want to know what your running it on)
Include what you've done for the forums, and if you fold etc. The more the better chances of getting the key are.

Who ever i feel really deserves it will get it. You must have over 800 post on the forums and be active. The key will be given to the person Sunday Night. (i am USA EST)
I than want proof that you have installed it and used it ( i shall send you a program to show your activated key as it will be the one i gave you)

You MUST bump this up by saying "PM sent" etc. to get my attention and to keep this thread going
(I will delete this post if this is not legal but i am pretty sure it is as it's a 100% Legit Windows 7 Home premium key 32-bit(sorry guys). Never activated.

EDIT:

I MAY have a second contest (don't know yet depends), But if this one doesn't draw a decent crowd i'll extend the contest until this weekend.

EDIT:

BEING THAT EVERYONE IS SAYIN SOMEONE ELSE DESERVES IT I FIND IT ONLY FAIR THAT I PUSH THE CONTEST UNTIL SUNDAY 11:59 EST. :rockout:

Contest ending early due to lack of interest thank you for all who tried out.
