Get Microsoft to update your PC, in person, for free

A limited number of people can take their Vista PCs to Microsoft for an update and an early copy of the upcoming Vista service pack.

The company will also give participants food, beverages and a gift for parcticipating in the day-long “install fair” on Oct. 27 at Microsoft Building 33.

It’s intended to get feedback and generate enthusiasm about Vista SP1.

To register, send an e-mail to vsp1reg@microsoft.com. But first you may want to check and see if your system meets the criteria listed on the Vista team blog.

If you’re interested I’d jump on this one; the blog invited Microsoft employees to register this morning and it’s first-come, first-serve.
