This will be my first time for an event like this. I go to the one in Detroit area.

Will the event eventually reach RTP in NC

Hey, I'm in RTP (Research Triangle Park) in Raleigh NC. Home of IBM, Red Hat, Cisco, NetApp, EMC and the list goes on. Why is the event not being hosted in this beautyful place? Even IBM uses Windows!!

http://www.microsoft.com/business/th...s/default.aspx

shows the Version as being Windows 7 ULTIMATE!!!
Sure looks like DALLAS to me..

Vista ? Lucky Texans!

(Seriously, Tinkerdog, you best recheck your email AND your online reservations.)
(They originally gave me Philadelphia when I damn well started with Denver. Moths!)

edit:
Hey,
Denver now shows the black box -- They changing their minds?

The words now say "Free copy of Windows 7 at the event"

Cudda sworn it was "Free copy of Win 7 Professional" before.

(Maybe they heard that you IT Professional guys don't want no Win 7 Pro !)

Huh. They really are showing Ultimate boxes now.

Yes, they did show Professional ones before (but I don't think their own wording was different -- just "free copy of Windows 7"). If they're going to bother to do giveaways geared to IT pros and developers, they really should do Ultimate to push the features like Bitlocker, etc. They should want those attending to go back and push Enterprise and Ultimate to their friends and employers. That's the whole point of a giveaway.

Word must have gotten out. A lot of places that were still showing space earlier are now totally sold out. Only getting a couple like Cleveland that still have space.

Oh noes. Microsoft DOES realize that the US does only use like half of the OS market? the rest is Europe, other continents are minorities, but COME ON! I already have a free windows 7 Ultimate, courtesy of FlashGet , but they're effectively cutting their profits in half by not making events in Europe. I wonder what drugs Bill Gates has been sniffing lately ...

typical though of foriegn countries feeling like they are "Left out" and getting the shaft by americans, never made sense to me.

Why doesnt heinekin host global events like they do across the pond? wah wah im going to go cry.
