    Congratulations... You are a Windows® 7 Launch Party host!!
    Because you were among the first host finalists to set up your party online, you are confirmed as a host and will be receiving a free party package to share with your guests shortly before the party.
    Packages will be mailed in time to arrive before your party date. Check your free party site regularly for news on what's in your package, when it's been shipped, and when you can expect it to arrive.
    Meanwhile, don't forget to use the free Guest Manager tool to manage your invite list.
    Use it to send invitations via email so your guests can join your online site when they RSVP. Don't have their email address? No problem -- use the print option, or just create a name-only record for them so they still appear on your party list.
    And while you're online, be sure to check out and upload fun photos and videos, post comments to the national party blog, and look around for other cool features.
    Please remember that information you post on the House Party website may be visible to the general public, so we advise you not to post any personally identifying information (such as last name, address, email or phone number). However, the information in your party invitations will only be visible to your guests.
    Thank you for hosting a Windows® 7 Launch Party!

    What if you are NOT selected

    What is displayed if you are NOT selected. I used to see that results would be declared under "My applications" But now I see
    "You don't have any current applications. Check out the events listing to apply for upcoming events"
    Am I NOT selected :(

    Now i refreshed the page and it says
    Your application was received on Thursday, September 3 2009 and is now under review.

    You will be notified by email of your status on or around Monday, September 21. Good luck!

    Please note: Only one application per household; multiple applications will be disqualified.


    Anyone from India who has got confirmed yet, or we are waiting in the queue?

    yeah, that's what I did. Got my email at midnight and set it all up this morning. Was selected right away. It probably depends on how soon you sent your initial application and also how many people in your area also applied.


    I hope you all get it for free! I will say this much, Ive been using it for 3 months now and I do think it's worth buying. The only legit MS software I ever owned was Vista- which is junk.

    I normally don't go in for all this kinda thing, but when I heard about it thought I would. Got an email early this morning saying I was a confirmed host, great. Read on the site that the party packs will be received by 10th October. Not really bothered if this is a cochure offer or not, but I have only ever had 1 genuine OS and that was Windows ME when I bought my 1st PC, so I think I deserve one for putting up with that for 2 years.:D

    I think who ever signed up will be a host, I doubt anyone will be turned away.
