Windows 7 gets by with a little help from it’s friends. Microsoft has announced in all of its operating system related newsgroups that they are giving away a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate Signature Edition to party hosts.
Microsoft is not letting just anyone host such a party though. The company is being very selective in the application process it has set up with HouseParty.com.
USENET newsgroups report that the offer is only open to residents of 12 countries: Australia, Italy, Canada, Japan, Mexico, France, Spain, Germany, the US, Hong Kong, the UK, and India.
A “Windows 7 Party Pack” that includes Host Help Videos, Host Notes, and other materials to make your Launch Party fun is included if selected.
Every host also has a chance to win a PC worth $750.00, according to the Web site. Winners will be notified and their prizes delivered after Oct. 30.
The house parties are set to run between October 22 and 29.
