    Write a story about how:

    Windows 7 saved your company money, solving your application compatibility issues ect… ?????

    I guess that story would need to be Fiction.

    Giving away 10 Copies !! Wow..

    Hope Microsoft doesn’t go bankrupt. (Splurging like that)

    Blank DVD’s are very expesive.

    I guess they know that not very many people have nice things to say.
    about Windows. SO, It may even be less than 10.
