In case you have not seen this yet, Microsoft is giving away free USB drives just for answering a few questions.

Probably not very big, but free is free.

I might do that as well assuming that it is at least 64MB in size.

There are versions of DamnSmallLinux that will fit on a 1.44mb floppy.

I'm wondering what the joke is. All I get is a page telling me how to buy WinXP licenses.

Or is this just Microsoft's way of telling me that the offer isn't open to those running Mozilla on Knoppix?

Not to hijack the thread or nothin', but... I would assume you need at least two floppys. One for the boot disk and one for the root disk.

I got one of those from another company (with info about the company saved on it). It looked exactly like that one (except for the logo) and it was 32MB. I'm going to guess this one is 32MB, too - but I could be wrong.

I applied at work (win2K). When I receive it, Damn Small Linux is getting installed.
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 12:51:50 PM EDT
It won't load for me, for some reason. That is, when I click on the "get yours!" image, it doesn't do anything except start loading the same URL you linked to, but not going anywhere.

Well, I'm a sucker. I filled out the survey.

Of course, I imagine that what they really want is my email address to sell to every spammer in the world.



too bad it is only good for another 6 days.

Tag for work, I can't get Firefox or Opera to display the page. Do Microsoft ship outside the US?

They already have my email address. I used my hotmail address to sign up for it. It's spammed to death anyways.

They don't seem to do that but you ought to have a Hotmail or Gmail account just to sign up for stuff like this.
