I may already be a winner!

Sign in to follow this  


Just got an email from Microsoft today. I won a free copy of Windows 2000 Professional in their Windows 2000 Professional Sneak Preview Contest. It'll be express-mailed to me within two weeks, as soon as they've got copies back from manufacturing.

Interestingly, I wasn't in too big of a hurry to buy Win2K, as I've got the 120-day MSDN version installed on my machine. I figured I had four months to upgrade. Looks like I won't have to wait that long.

Anyway, they're picking another 3,000 winners on 2/4, so get your ass over there and sign up!

Am I the only one who finds Microsoft's new "hide the stuff you don't use much" scheme to be gigantically annoying?! While popping up my IE bookmarks today, I got a little cartoon-balloon saying that a few bookmarks that I hadn't visited in a while had been conveniently hidden for me. Thanks, Microsoft, but if I don't want to see a bookmark anymore, I'll delete it myself. You don't have to hide it from me like my hunchback evil twin brother, Anton.

Office 2000 does that too. The first thing I did after installing Office was to turn that feature off.

I mean, the animated paper clip is sometimes annoying, but at least it does something!
