Default Offer to get M$ office for free

I don't know if this offer is bogus or not, but I registered and completed it just in case....found it on ZDNet's site...supposedly you can register, watch 3 webcasts each for M$ vista business edition and for M$ office 2007, then you get them for free! It's supposed to be a marketing thing aimed at developers, but anyone over 18 can sign up. It's only while supplies last, as they are only giving away a limited amount of each. The vista offer is already gone, but the office offer is still available. Here is the powertogether.com site... http://www.powertogether.com/ . and here is the link to the article on ZDNet about it... http://blogs.zdnet.com/hardware/?p=164 . Here is another blog about it... http://channel9.msdn.com/ShowPost.as...=261550#261550 . You can check it out for yourself and decide to sign up or not, but I just wanted to let you all know in case it's a real deal and you could get office for free...i did just the vista one, and supposedly will get that for free. I only did one because they said if you did both, the gift amount would total over $600 and would require a w-9 form for taxes, so i didn't do both.

Yup. I knew about that like two days ago. I still need one more webcast for Office 2007.

It's official. One of the developers from Microsoft has even confirmed it. They haven't confirmed the actual amount of copies for giving away, but they said it would be about "the five digit range" so expect any amount.

NOTICE: The Power Together deal is SOLD OUT! That means it's over and no more copies are left.
