    Want a copy of Microsoft Office Professional 2007 ???  How about Groove 2007 ?

    Well, if you are in the US and are a developer, then check out http://blogs.technet.com/keithcombs/archive/2007/01/05/how-would-you-like-a-complimentary-copy-of-office-2007-professional.aspx

    It's pretty simple.  Attend a MSDN event in Q3 (Jan - March), learn kewl stuff and get a complimentary key.  That key lets you download a real non time bombed copy of Office Pro 2007 along with Groove 2007.

    As with all of our events, seats and stuff are limited so register quick.

    I doubt it.  The MSDN events start at 1pm and usually we hand out a coupon good for a coke and popcorn.  I guess it depends on your definition of food. Tongue Out

    Here in denmark, we get some nice sandwiches at MSDN events.

    Well the UK Vista/Office launch is supposed to have giveaways of licenses as well.

    I haven't even seen anything about a New Zealand launch yet...
    Unless I've missed something there's not been a whisper.Sad

    Software freebies (apart from the fact that free stuff is always nice) are an excellent way of jump-starting adoption.

    At the Visual Studio Launch events in the UK in 2005 every delegate was issued with a voucher for a free copy of Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition and SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition.

    Actually, I'm probably wrong.  Usually we do TechNet and MSDN USA events in the movie theatres.  We are using hotels for the Vista/Exchange/Office launch events.  I have no idea what food, if any, there will be.  I'll check...

    It's always US and UK... That's the normal Microsoft behaviour Wink
