Woohoo...

And? First thought that came to mind for me was selling it and just buying a normal copy (sell for higher then the normal copy, obviously)

I decided I'd keep it though.

My opinion, they can do whatever they want with the Win7 copy. It's theirs personal.

It's the party stuff that would make me mad showing up on eBay. MS contracted a party from them with this stuff, so they better use it.

I must be one of the few who never got any email saying we were selected. Of course, I still have not gotten any saying I wasn't either. It kind of bothers me in a way since a lot of "hosts" are simply selling their party pack on eBay instead of using it the way MS intended. I think it would have been fun to throw a party! Maybe next time, whenever Windows 8 comes out

There is really no use in selling the Sig Edition of 7 either...

Of course you can sell it for more than a retail Ultimate BUT you are not going to get THAT much more (at least from a sensibly intelligent person). MS killed the value of it with all of the Sig Editions they have sent out.It could have been worth a lot more

Windows 7 Global System EQ
I want to apply an EQ that affects all output from windows 7. So that means I have no interest in how to use the EQ in WMP, foobar or winamp etc... that is not global, that is app specific. I have a realtek soundcard and the latest drivers (R2.70) and am aware of the graphic EQ settings...
