What a wonderful irony this is. Microsoft promise us extra storage but instead send emails to use up a little more of ours!
Ah well, at least you got an email...

At least my email was to my Hotmail (now Live Mail beta) account, so technically....it's being stored on a Microsoft drive. This publicity stunt makes me wonder if anyone actually got a thumbdrive, anywhere.

For those who did not get an email, I wonder, will you get a drive??
But either way, here is my copy of the email, for your viewing pleasure.

Thank you for your interest in the Mystery Solved Windows® licensing promotion. We've received your request for more information to help clarify Microsoft® Windows Desktop Licensing pre-loaded on the USB drive. Unfortunately, this Mystery Solved promotion was available in the U.S. only and while supplies last. Supply is depleted at this time, so we encourage you to please utilize the online alternative today.

Simply download* the Windows Desktop Licensing reference files directly at:

www.microsoft.com/mysterysolved/corp

To help simplify Windows Desktop Licensing, keep these points in mind:


There are two legal ways to acquire a full Windows Desktop license: through your hardware vendor (OEM/System Builder) or Full Packaged Product.

Volume licensing covers Windows Desktop operating system upgrades only.

OEM operating system licenses live and die with each PC–they are not transferable.

Again, thank you for your interest in Mystery Solved and for helping us spread the word about proper Windows licensing.

Sincerely,
Microsoft Corporation
