Submission + - Netflix at Crossroads (latimes.com)

You must register for this, but if you already own the standard you get upgraded to Pro, and you get your support extended for a year. Me I plan on donating to them regardless, this is very good of them to follow through on their promise. So go register, and I encourage you to donate as well.

For your three dollars you get WinXP starter edition (what no Vista?), and Office Home Edition. a wonderful quote from the article is '"Certainly," he added, "for Microsoft this is an investment in the long term. These are the consumers of the future."' — Glad to see MS is worried about linux adoption.
