If you previously submitted app in hopes of becoming a Windows 7 Launch Party host, be sure to check your email and spam folder. The software giant said it has selected finalists, though simply receiving the email doesn't ensure you'll get to host and receive a free copy of Windows 7 Ultimate for doing so.
"Receiving the finalist email doesn't mean you've been accepted to host just yet. You will need to be among the first to respond via a link within your email to be confirmed as a host," wrote Brandon LeBlanc, one of Microsoft's in-house Windows bloggers.
LeBlanc added that the extra step is the result of the "amazing response" it had from people wanting
a free copy of Windows 7 Ultimate
to host a party.
For those of you who weren't selected as a party host and can do without the free swag -- including a "good chance" of winning a Windows PC worth $750 -- LeBlanc says "you can still hold a Windows 7 gathering of your own," with Microsoft providing Windows 7 tips, content, demos, and training. Oh boy!
