    Congratulations to all the participants and winners. It was excellent to see both the breadth of topics addresses (from tweaks and common solutions) to specialized areas (like MSI or security). It was a real pleasure to help and I appreciate all the excellent work that each of you does to help people (me included!) find answers and help. thanks. Paulscho@microsoft.com

    Congrats to all the participants – 65 sites dedicated to Windows 7 before its worldwide release is an amazing accomplishment.

    Congrats to the winners, the runners-up, the honorable mentions, and every one else that entered the competition. There is literally tons of stuff out there now about Win 7 and it is definitely going to do better than previous attempts.

    Finally, Thanks to the Windows Club for hosting this contest as well as to the judges providing their time to asses 65 different sites. That had to be time consuming, and you guys did great.
