    That free ebook offer is crap.  Claiming a DRM'd PDF, locked in an active-x control, hosted in webpage, that opens once after many attempts, after filling out a registration form, that was already filled with information, that hasn't changed in five years, as free or in any other way comparable to beer, is a fraud.

    With that said, the content of the Microsoft Press books is good and should not be tarnished by the ridiculous restrictions placed on it by unscrupulous individuals.

    I was able to open it and save to a 39MB IntroSQL2008.xps file on Vista.
    Kudos to Microsoft Press. Big Smile

    Hi Dovella -

    I think that the "I'm a PC" submissions get reviewed before they get posted. They of course have to make sure that each submission is appropriate for the campaign. Since the campaign launched last week I'm sure they are dealing with thousands of submissions right now, and of course there's no guarantee that all submissions will be used as part of the campaign. I submitted mine, too. I hope yours makes it in!

    To all Niners: If your "I'm a PC" video gets used in the campaign please send us a link. We can start using these in This Week on Channel 9. Smiley And even if it doesn't make it into the ad campaign, send us a link to your video on your own blog or other location we can download from and we'll use a few of those as well. Simply email bestshow AT microsoft DOT com.

    Performance on the "Silverlight Grid Control Demos" is quite bad on my dual core 2.8 Ghz...

    That’s retarded.  They won’t let you save it, but they will let you print it to a file.  Wonders never cease.
