Win A Windows Home Server Or XBox 360

In between Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, there is a new OS for general home ICT consumers, which is Windows Home Server.

This family-oriented Windows OS has reached manufacturers on 16 July 2007, almost 9 months old and going to celebrate its first anniversary soon.
Now, you may or may not aware that you might have a chance to get yourself a free unit of this Windows Home Server, a Zune player, or a XBox 360, by helping Microsoft to evaluate one of the 15 products (that launched in conjunction of the release of Windows Server 2008)!
