What if I didn’t Win?

I believe everyone should be a winner on Windows Guides. Hopefully I can make this somewhat possible by offering the following:

Download a 90-day trial of Windows 7 Enterprise

OR if you would like a DVD with Windows 7 Ultimate RC (valid until March 2010), I am willing to burn one and send it to you if you’re willing to cover shipping and materials. Go here, donate $5 or more, I’ll reply to your Paypal email to get your address, and I’ll send the DVD to you—anywhere in the world. I’d love to send these for free, but I’ve already sent over 20 and the costs; thus far, are over $100, which I can’t keep up. I hope you’ll understand.

    Thank you for the chanceto try out the ultimate. I have the Home Premium versio on pre-order but have never tried the Ultimate version. With all the work you yodo for us here, a donation is the LEAST I can do for you and the community. Besides you’re a nice guy. :)

    Awesome! I am posting on everything, forgive me, but I really want that! I hope this isn’t spamming. But the example given by Mel is that even if you have a 1 in 6 chance, that doesn’t guarantee it! Nevertheless, I really want it, so that is what I will do!
