I am!

Not sure if I will use my copy of Windows 7 Signature Edition, or sell it and get the $30 Student edition one... Hmmm...

A Windows 7 launch party would be a lot more exciting if I didn't already have it (MSDNAA). :lol:

Most likely no one will even come to my party, I only signed up for the rewards =P I think I'm going to sell most of my stuff I get from the party and build a MAME cabinet.

So what exactly does one have to do to "host" a party (I know you have to sign up)? Do I actually have to have people come, or could I have a party with my family?

Did you get selected, vskid?

That is the first step. :P

They say you have to invite at least 9 other people, I suppose that includes family. They say that Microsoft Reps might show up, it would be bad if nobody was there. :lol:

No, I haven't signed up because I didn't want to have to do a lame party. :P There are 6 others in my family, plus I could have some friends come over and play Halo... I'm gonna go sign up. :mrgreen:

For me it didn't say I needed 9 people. I only invited 4 and it confirmed me.

Yes, yes it is. So are student discounts on other stuff (I'm looking at you, Adobe), and insane Internets (see sig).
