Nick White (from www.windowsvistablogs.com ) let me know that this site is indeed 100% legitimate.

http://www.powertogether.com/

You can attend webcasts to learn the products and ultimately get them free, has been a lot of word this is a scam but has been confirmed to be official. Watcg three webcasts each for Windows Vista and Office 2007 within 30 days of registering, 6-8 weeks later you'll get shiny new DVD cases at your front door.

US Only! (bleh)

So you can get both or just one? I'm registering.

Edit: You don't have to register if you already have a Live ID.

Come on man..they are pushing the "power of together". So what would be the point of giving out Vista as a gift but NOT Office 2007? :)

only reason i'm debating trying for both is that if you get both, you have to submit tax information.

Grandmaster: read the faq. or better yet, i'll post the part in question:

Why do I have to provide my Social Security Number on a W9 form to receive my gift?

The combined retail value for participants who register and qualify for both the Microsoft Office and Windows Vista offer is $798. IRS rules require that any gift over $600 is taxable which requires us to collect W9 information from participants and to file a 1099 with the IRS for the value of both products. This is why you received an email that directed you to a secure website to provide that information and we must receive it before shipping your product.

I have been trying to do this for a couple days... the site is so slow I dont think its even possible now. Tuffgong you said Vista is sold out now? Great... it wasn't when I got all signed up and such.... gah, so much for having the advantage of hearing about it about a day before everyone else in the world... :(

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
