    Windows 7 launch party

    Did anyone here get picked to run a Windows party? If you were, you get a free copy of Windows 7, lucky you, and some streamers and whatnot to host your party.

    Also, I hope you're going to make your party a little more interesting than this:

    raena, I watched that clip and it made me think of the Tom Hank's movie "The Burbs", I don't know why but those people were smiling in a very odd and unnatural way which along with the Windows promotions made me wonder if their "party guests" were buried in the yard.

    That was the longest 6 minutes 14 seconds I've ever spent watching a video. :P

    30 minutes of dragging windows to the corners of the screen before "activities". Then "showing guests how to use windows.com/help". This sounds like the worst party ever thrown.

    Windows7 Launch Party. I'm going to host my own on that day Consisting of some Candies in a bowl and me

    I hate kids with a passion I don't like to talk to them or anything, but the Asian girl who does the Windows7 commercial is very cute, and the commercial is funny and probably one of the best ones Microsoft has ever done.

    Yeah she is. She did a commercial featuring photo gallery in Vista last year, and they put her in the new Windows 7 commercials. There's more than one now:

    Yeah the Vista Gallery one was very cute. As she said "I'm going to make things much better" Now in the new one for Windows7 she shows us that all the reviews of Windows7 are positive and it's the best OS by showing us cute animals that also agree with her statement.

    I'm excited for Windows7 there is only one thing that I'm dreading is that reinstalling everything

    I like the a-team theme going with the cute animal pictures - any one that watched it growing up can appreciate the irony

    They have been pushing the really cute ones with kids on TV here in the UK, mainly under 6 year olds... and for some strange reason they always have really eerie northern accents My parent's can't use a computer (and their scared of em - technophobes) so I always mock them that their being outsmarted by infants
