Windows 7 is going to launch around the world (not in Malaysia though) on the 22nd of October. With the high number of good feedback for Windows 7, I believe this will be the most successful Windows compared to the other Windows (except Windows XP at the moment which is still primarily used by many). In conjunction with the launching, there are several software companies decided to giveaway their precious for free for whoever feels happy and excited with the launching of Windows 7. Below are the two surprises that impressed me the most:
Update: No more. Bad move by Panda Security for restricting to US residential only on the last minute. I am pretty sure they don’t have that term before 12am. Bad move.
Update 2: I have successfully registered myself and waiting for the keycode to be sent. The registration doesn’t require address to be filled in, so I wonder how they limit it to US resident. Anyway, let’s hope the key comes in. Go ahead and register yourself first!
