Thread: Free Vista Ultimate Key

  1. #1

    Default Free Vista Ultimate Key

    Any one else get this from Microsoft:

    Offer 1: The ULTIMATE OFFER
    Just go to your favorite retail or online store and purchase a standalone, full package Windows Vista Ultimate product, full or upgrade version, and we will match that with a second, complimentary Windows Vista Ultimate Upgrade product key. We will honor a copy you purchased, and first activated, after December 1, 2007. Hurry! This offer expires on January 15, 2008.

    To take advantage of this great offer, simply follow these steps:

    Go to http://www.windowsvistaevalcomp.com.
    Sign in using the same Windows Live ID that you used to download the beta or release candidate versions of Windows Vista.
    Follow the instructions to locate the Product ID on the computer running the qualifying copy Windows Vista Ultimate that you recently purchased.
    Enter that Product ID into the online form.
    We will then provide you with a Windows Vista Ultimate upgrade key, so you can install Windows Vista Ultimate onto a second machine. (The second machine must have Windows XP or a version of Windows Vista already installed in order to upgrade)


    Please note that this key is NOT for resale, although you may give it as a gift to a friend or colleague. Limit one complimentary key per person. Windows Vista Ultimate Academic and Student versions are not included in this promotion.

    EDIT - posted the full 'offer'
    clicking the link reveals a server error.

    There was an earlier post on this but nobody has been able to provide any verifiable proof at this stage to either confirm or deny it so the O/P asked that it be removed.

    BTW - A lookup on the domain (windowsvistaevalcomp.com) shows that the domain is hosted in India - kind of an odd decision for microsoft to make imo.

    Looks a bit dodgy to me, especially since it doesn't point to a verified MS site.

    Yep, like I said, India. Seems a bit dubious.

    hmm, I googled this and there are many other discussions about this, but no one has an accurate answer. So, my question. in the mail it says:

    All of these offers are available only to named recipients of this offer who participated in the Windows Vista Beta or Release Candidates through TechNet or MSDN. These offers are non-transferable and are limited to one each per person. See offer websites for specific rules.
    I know I NEVER participated in the BETA or RC of vista. I do have a MSDN subscription.

    If you never participated in the beta I think you can safely mark this as spam

    Its probably a scam to get your details. Would you trust it if it asked for your
    banking login details to say ... double up your balance for free?

    Microsoft can keep their [email protected] buggy Vista, I'll stick to XP.
    And considering I only recently bought a legal copy of XP, I'm going to get my monies worth haha.

    If I'm able to sort out the small problems I'm having with Windows Vista then I'll gladly use it full-time. But it's fixing these problems that's proving difficult...
