Ars reader gets free Win7 after complaint to Ballmer

An Ars Technica reader from the Cayman Islands was annoyed enough that he couldn't throw his own official Windows 7 Party that he e-mailed Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer to complain. The result? A free Windows 7 Party Pack before anyone else gets theirs.

Good for him, glad to hear that the big boys do listen and take notice of the little fellow.
I know he said in his reply that he didn't expect anything but I think it shows good PR on the part of Microsoft the action they took.

Suggestions for a free PDF Reader ?
I'm looking for a free PDF Reader. I've been using Foxit for years and looking for something different. I'm test driving Nitro Reader and so far it seems pretty good. Anyone know of any problems with Nitro Reader, or know of a better free Reader I can try? Thanks, David
