Posted by Rich On September - 17 - 2009

Update: The winner is posted here.

Side note: The winner will receive a boxed version of Windows 7, ordered from Amazon and not just a license key.

Last week, I attempted to give away Windows 7 Home Premium, but the winner has not come forward to claim their prize. I’ve tried, multiple times, to contact them and I’ve not heard back.

The good news is I still want to give Windows 7 away to a reader; this is what I’ve decided to do:

  • I could have randomly chosen another winner; however, I didn’t expect an unclaimed prize and adding a new rule to the old competition seemed wrong.
  • I’ve decided to bump the prize up to Windows 7 Ultimate!
  • The competition will run for 77 hours and end on Sunday, September 20, 2009 @ 5 P.M. EST.


What Do I Win?

Windows 7 Ultimate (Retail: $319.99)
