Um... can I ask you all something? Why are you gunning for Vista? Don't we hate Vista 'cause of M$ and bloating and over user-friendliness and all of that? :lol: I thought that was the geek way... either,

"I use Linux and I love it." or

"I use Windows only 'cause I can't figure out how to use Linux and I don't have the patience for it." or

"I only use Windows because none of the programs I use will run on Linux." or

"... My mom won't let me install Linux... >.>" :lol:

Or... are you all planning on selling Vista on eBay since it's such a good deal? Or is Vista not as bad as I'm thinking? :?: YOU GUYS ARE SENDING ME MIXED SIGNALS!!! :lol:

Now that I think about it, Vista Ultimate retails for $400... the 360 core (probably what they'd end up sending you) retails for $300. Vista = 6,000 tickets, 360 = 35,000 tickets. :? Okay... so maybe I'll aim for Vista instead. :lol: Does anyone know if I can get... like.. multiple copies of Vista, or if they'll only let me get one of each product or something? :twisted:

Hotdog cart, I think I read on another forum topic in another forum when searching for an answer key to seekadoo said that this was open to US only residents. Make sure to read the fine print before spending loads of time on it.

EDIT: Harshboy and I are going to sell vista on ebay so we can get the money and buy stuff. I'm not sure about the other people.

Hmm... it's not going for much. :( But... maybe I'm just being greedy. A lot can be done with ~$150-$200, I suppose.

But seriously... do you think you can get multiple copies...? Also... if M$ DID catch us... what's the worst thing they could/would do? Suspend our accounts? This is, in a way, "cheating". But can it be considered illegal?

Well remember OEM pricing... That shows you how much they inflate the retail prices. Why? Because they can.<s>*coughjustlikenintendocough*</s>

For $180 to $220 you can buy a Brand New Retail 30 GB Zune. Woo!

But I might just get the 20000 Tickets to actually get the Zune because if I got 3,000 in 2 days, 20,000 isn't that much :wink:

@ Electric Rain: You can order Five copies of whatever you buy (So 5 Copies of Vista) - Come to think of it, 3 copies of Vista is 2,000 Tickets less than the Zune, so maybe I should get 3 copies of Vista and sell each for $150.

What would I do with $450!? Hmm.....

Still pretty good, you'd only have to get 12000 points, sell the Vista's and buy a 360. I was thinking of going for a Zune, but I could just get Vista (for 1/3rd the points) and sell it for about the same price.

Unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to get on much this week, so I'll have to wait til next week to see how fast I can go.

I've got some spiffy news on how I'm gonna get lots of tickets today.

You can have more than one person logged onto your account at the same time!!! Just get a few friends and before you know it, 25 points per minute turns into 100!

OMG! It's true! No more Vista....NO!!!!! Guess I have to do the 20,000 to get that Zune now.


I'm at 4,201 Tickets right now. I'm gonna get to 5,000 today, and basically just get 2,000 everyday. It will be a matter of a week or so until I have enough to buy the Zune (assuming they don't remove it)

There was a glitch or something, people were getting Vista with <50 games played, however Vista could be gone for good .. who knows. Vista doesn't cost them much to produce, soooo we'll figure out in a week or two. Hopefully if Vista returns, more puzzles do as well.
