Our team apologies for the forum issues, as the mail server was having problems sending out activation emails. Fortunately, we have decided to extend the contest until 11:59pm, December 31st. To enter, just leave a comment in this post on whether or not you’ll be upgrading to Windows 7, and why.

For those who successfully commented in the forum, please leave a comment here as well. The winner will be randomly drawn using random.org, based on the comment number — above your username. If you were having problems registering at our forums previously, it should now be fixed — register here.

Just to recap, we have many more contests lined up to kickoff 2009, including a Lenovo laptop, Star Trek messenger bag, and a host of other gadgets.
