Free Windows Vista Business and Office 2007 Professional is giving away free licenses of Windows Vista and Office 2007 Professional to anyone who participates in three webcasts, and gives away a single page of personal information (name, email, address, phone number, job title). Yes, it is really that simple. In fact, I’m wasting time writing this! Back to my “Look at Mobility Features in Windows Vista” webcast.

I’m just hoping Windows Anytime Upgrade allows downgrades to Vista Premium. Otherwise, I’ll have to upgrade to Ultimate.

Before you get skeptical, Microsoft has confirmed this as genuine. This is actually more business-as-usual than you think. Getting free copies of Windows is more of an investment of time, than something actually difficult.

UPDATE: Things I already learned: OEMs can extend Windows Mobility Center, with hardware specific control panels, in order to discourage them from ruining the Windows UI with strange and resource-heavy controls. Also, they can smack their logo in the middle of the Mobility Center.

UPDATE 2: Shortcut key for Mobility Center: Windowskey + X

UPDATE 3: Click on the icon in any Mobility Center tile to get to the full control panel for that item.
