Zdnet had reported a Microsoft give-away which allowed one to get a free copy of Office 2007 or Vista. I jumped at the opportunity and I completed the requirements and this is what Microsoft has to say:
Congratulations! You’ve completed the number of Webcasts or vLabs required to receive a free, fully-licensed copy of Microsoft Office Professional 2007. Once we’ve confirmed that you meet the eligibility requirements stated in the offer details below we will ship your gift within 6-8 weeks of the release to manufacturing of Microsoft Office Professional 2007. While you’re waiting, why not check out additional Webcasts of vLabs to further your skills?
I just hope there is no further catch in it. The “… confirmed your eligibility requirements…” sorta scares me! I can only wait and watch.
I do use the Microsoft Office 2007 Beta and I really like it a lot. They have done an amazing job with the interface and I am also happy to see that they have changed from a binary format to a compressed XML format for describing the *.doc (now *.docx) files.
