    I'm "hosting" a Windows 7 party!

    I was one of the first to confirm that I'm hosting a Windows 7 party, so I get all the freebies (excluding balloons!!)

    W'Hey,...... if only Windows 7 would install on my MSI motherboard! GRRRRR

    Firstly, a Windows 7 party sounds like a really bad idea!

    Secondly, you can't install Windows 7 on any motherboard. You need a hard drive

    You're absolutely right Windows 7 is a bit hit and miss with some motherboards it seems (joke aside).

    The best of the freebies is a signed (don't know by whom) copy of Windows 7 Ultimate.
    Other fun packed freebies include: Windows 7-themed totebags, puzzles, napkins, playing cards

    That is no better than having a Windows 7 party... why have a party for an operating system?! It's like having a barbecue in honour of your electricity supplier... it's dull, sad and boring. If that's the only excuse for having a party you can think of then you've got problems!!!
