Did anyone attend the Seattle event? I attended part of the W7 Dev track, and most of the W7 IT track...the rest of the time I spent talking to the Lenovo guys about not loading up their machines with crapware.

Knee slapper. Better than a chuckle or a ROFL.
It was the funniest I have seen in a long while.

Sadly, all of those events are too far for most of the world's population.

Donnyb... Your attempt at humor is 2nd rate.... your request for a definition however is legitimate, unlike your copy of Windows... Here ya go...


The word warez is intended as a plural of "ware", short for computer software. Thus it is intended to be pronounced like the word wares, /ˈwɛərz/, but people commonly pronounced the e, /ˈwɑrɛz/, as in the English pronunciation of Juárez.
One possible origin[original research?] of the word "warez" is from "ware", meaning any kind of product of human labor (from whence, or course, "software"), and, especially in its plural form, goods offered for sale. Before the Internet was available, users of dial-up bulletin board systems coined the term to indicate more than one piece of software. "Software" is a non-count noun, so it was natural to use a count noun to differentiate between one "ware" (one piece of software) and multiple "wares" or, more humorously, "warez" (multiple pieces of software).[citation needed] Due to the relatively large amounts of time needed to transfer large files over slow telephone modems and bulletin board systems (BBSes), software exchangers would typically ask for one-for-one trades from their colleagues (sometimes file for file, but more typically byte for byte). While the 'cost' of each byte transfer might have been equal, or 1:1, the desireability of the software (quality, origin, legality, rarity, privacy) was not, prompting exchangers to first request to see what warez were available on a particular server before submitting their own 'prized warez', especially on a typical premium server with a 3:1 or 10:1 transfer ratio. Hence, software exchangers adopted a merchant-like attitude with their software collection(s) and the term "warez" became apt. The somewhat dated flavor of the word "wares" is said to have led to the use of much humorously intended mock-medieval phraseology amongst software traders, such as, "Excuse me, kind sir. May I see your warez?"

Got a seat for the LA Event

I just registered today and got a confirmation e-mail for the 28th even in LA. I am very excited for the event and can't wait. Last time I attending a Windows Launch was when Windows 2000 was Launched in NJ. This should be a fun day and hope to learn a lot. I have been testing and using Windows 7 since its alpha stages.

LOLL Your copy of windows will become un-activated as soon as the commercial release has happened... the 22nd right? And then you'll be in a whole pile of sh!t... And Warez are like programs that are illegal... :P Fully activated/ etc. etc..

Windows 7 Ultimate
 
 

Like everyone who attended the New Efficiency events, I got 32-bit Ultimate media instead of the 64-bit Professional disk that was specified in the event details. I've spoken to virtually every conceivable MSFT department-Replacement Parts, MS Store, etc- to get replacement media and after having called half-a-dozen different numbers I've apparently hit the wall: the last number I called told me emphatically that no replacement media was available for those who attended these events.

Since there doesn't appear to be any way to get the disk, can I simply use my Ultimate key with the x64 Professional .iso I downloaded? I know that you couldn't use a Home key for Pro or a Pro key for Ultimate, but I was hoping an Ultimate key had a sort of 'access all areas' backstage pass, if you follow me.

In the event this isn't possible, can anyone recommend a safe torrent or whatever, or am I crossing the line even asking?
