Party Like it’s Windows 7 (Or How I Became A HouseParty Host for the Windows 7 Launch)

Over a month ago I submitted an application to be a  houseparty host for Windows 7 Launch on October 22nd.  To be honest, the only reason I wanted to be a host was for the free Windows 7 Ultimate “Signature Edition” that came with being a host.

Much to my surprise, I was picked to be a host finalist, and then a confirmed host!  I was ecstatic–This type of thing only happens once in a lifetime, and it’s something I will be telling my grand-kids about.  //End Tongue-In-Cheek//

Well, today I received a 4.5 lb box from Microsoft.

HouseParty Favors!

It was my party favors!

Check out all the random stuff–

But the real thing that stood out like a diamond in the rough

Windows 7 Ultimate--Signature Edition

Signed by the hand of Ballmer himself, Microsoft’s CEO. (Also of Chair-Throwing & Developers Fame)

So what about the party itself?

Well, I think I am going to decorate our I.T Office here, and invite the faculty and staff to stop by and grab some donuts and coffee, while I speak on the greatness of Windows and the evils of Linux.

No, really, that’s my plan.  (Except for the speaking part)

That should assuage my guilty conscience for signing up just for the free copy of Windows7.

  1. You know, Josh, that if you don’t want to dirty your system with installing that on it, you’re more than welcome to send it to me; I’m already infected. I’ll even pay for the shipping get it off your hands! ;)

    Seriously, though, that’s so awesome. Congrats on being picked! I’ve heard that Windows 7 is a lot better than Vista, so I’d be interested in hearing your impressions of it.
