  1. First of all, this nor a scam or spam, it is a legitimate question:

    I'm a user of Windows Xp Pro Sp3, however due to upcoming hardware upgrades within the month or so I plan to switch to Windows Vista if possible. However, I am a student and I will only do it if resources permit...

    Here's the thing, I was looking up some reviews to see whats new and fixed in Vista SP1, to acquaint myself with Vista prior to the plunge and something caught my eye which made my [cheap-***] heart jump!

    Registered Beta tester? Free Upgrade to Windows Vista?!

    That's what immediately clicked in my head.

    Now way back when Vista hit RC1, I remember [vaguely] jumping through a lot of Microsoft hoops to try out their new operating system to see how my PC's hardware fared.

    However as you can see in the following screenshot, I have a DVD for RC1, is there anyway I can get myself on a "Free Copy of Vista-gravy-train"?

    Thanks :D
