Microsoft® to showcase Windows® 7 in house parties
Microsoft is going the Amway way by asking people to organize house parties to demonstrate its new Windows 7 operating system, which is scheduled to be launched on October 22.
The software giant has created an online party coordinating service, called houseparty.com, where interested folks can register. The selected candidate will be given a free Windows 7 Signature Edition. Moreover, each host could also win a personal computer worth $750. The online party coordinating service will help hosts organize the party, and will provide a special kit, which may comprise some small things like keychains or T-shirts for guests.
