As everyone should know by now, Monday is Windows Refund Day. A number of co-ordinated regional events and/or group requests have been planned for Refund Day. If you have software to return, please bring along all of your (unused) original installation media and supporting documentation, including manuals, Certificates of Authenticity, any purchase receipts, and evidence that you have never used the copy of Windows for which you will be seeking a refund. In most areas, interested people who are not returning software are also more than welcome to tag along.
Most importantly, however, participants in those regions where there are organized refund efforts should not simply show up at Microsoft offices on their own; that would cause unwelcome chaos and confusion. Polite and orderly refund requests are essential to the success of this event, as well as to obtaining continued favorable media coverage.
Therefore, several regional Refund Day organizers have designated advance meeting places or contact procedures for participants in Northern California, Southern California, New York City, France, New Zealand, Japan, and the Netherlands. (In some of these places, a single representative will make requests on behalf of everyone; in others, group meetings or demonstrations are planned.) Please examine your regional Windows Refund co-ordination site and carefully follow the directions there; this will also ensure that you get the most recent and accurate news possible.
Check the list of efforts at the Windows Refund Day resources one more time to get the most recent news for your area, and good luck on the 15th!
