Ballmer Signs Windows 7 Signature Edition, Sorta

Just over a month ago, Microsoft announced that it was teaming up with House Party to help people around the world throw Windows 7-themed parties the week following the launch of the new OS.

Those selected to hold Windows 7 parties can upload photos and videos, chat with other hosts and blog. The real incentive for the host to throw one of these parties is the free special Signature Edition of Windows 7 Ultimate and a Windows 7 Party Pack.

At the time we didn't know much about what "Signature Edition" meant, but now we know thanks to reports on the internet from those who have received their party packs.

Essentially, it's a promotional copy of Windows 7 Ultimate that comes in a special box adorned with a printed reproduction of Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's John Hancock. Check out the photos from StuffiWrote for more.

    Tell me again why Steve Balmer's signature is so "valuable"?

    Aw shoot!!!! It's 32-Bit!!! What a load of garbage! I'm getting my free copy on the 7th with my "house party" pack, but now I see it's only 32-Bit! How's that supposed to make me like Windows 7? I've got 4GB of RAM!!!!! Good thing I've got my MSDN account to fall back on... (I've already got the retail windows 7 Ultimate running on my computer!)

    A guy here @ work was having a Win7 party... I laughed.

    Honestly, i will happily dump $250 for my copy of NON signed OEM Win7 Ultimate instead of throwing or attending a Win7 party.

    All the power to you if you are geeky enough to claim a "legal" free copy this way.
