When one Windows enthusiast complained that they weren’t eligible to host a Windows 7 Party due to their location (the Cayman Islands), Microsoft decided to send them a free Windows 7 Party Pack – the box of goodies given out to Windows 7 launch party hosts – well before anyone else in the world received theirs.
After writing a complaint email and sending it directly to Steve Ballmer himself, the upset customer was surprised to receive a response the very next day explaining why the Caribbean region was not covered in the ongoing promotion (something to do with “logistics” and “other limiting factors”). To make up for this, though, Microsoft offered to send out a USA Party Pack for free.
Thrilled with the offer, the writer returned to their blog to detail what the pack included, complete with unboxing photos. Along with the Windows 7 tote bags, branded napkins, puzzle, playing cards, and poster was a special edition of the Windows 7 OS: the “Steve Ballmer Signature Edition.” Given out exclusively to party hosts, this special copy of Windows 7 Ultimate features Steve Ballmer’s signature right on the box.
