Default Re: Free Windows 7 Professional at launch events across the US

Actually seems a bit closer than I thought it was. They just mentioned the name of the movie theater and I was looking at the wrong one. It's going to be 46.6 miles round trip (23.3 miles there 23.3 miles back) but that is pure freeway driving, so not a long trip, about 60 minutes round trip as per my second guess.

Not exactly next door but I've driven further distances for more trivial sh*t. Maybe like 3 gallons of gas at the most, and even that is a very liberal estimation. $7.50 and 3 hours worth of time for something that will sell for $200, not a bad deal.

Hey NekroSoft props to you for the headsup on this event.
I attended the FL event yesterday it was pretty intersteting the only bummer is the free Win7 Ultimate that was handed out was only the 32bit version.

Not complaining its a freebie althought I took a day out of work to attend, just thought it was kind of chessy on Micro$oft end not to give out 64bit versions it isnt like they lose anymore by giving away 64 bit copies. Thanks again.

I attended in Minneapolis and it was the samel I was a bit disappointed with them only including the 32bit media/DVD.
The Key is retail and valid for Both/Either 32 or 64bit so you have the license and just need to get a copy of the 64bit media.

Just got back from the Phoenix one. All in all was pretty worth the 40 mile drive (round trip of course, 20mi each way) got some free breakfast and a free copy of win 7 ultimate (was expecting pro.) Got even more than I bargained for I guess Not bad for 3 hours and $7 in gas.

Sadly like everybody else though, only the 32-bit disc was included. So that said, does anybody know the md5sum or sha1sum of the RTM 64-bit disc? I have a feeling MS has posted it to one of their technet forums.

EDIT: Quick search yielded this sha1sum for the 64-bit ultimate disc: 326327cc2ff9f05379f5058c41be6bc5e004baa7

Can any of our resident MSDN technet subscribers confirm that? I've already started downloading a torrent based on that but will wait til confirmation before using it.
