I got mine last week. It took a long time. About 2 months from the time I
ordered it if memory serves. It even took a couple of weeks after I got the
"it's in the mail" email.

If you consider the volume involved with an International no cost and free
shipping offer covering a whole spread of operating systems from Microsoft
it's hardly a wonder that there would be some confusion.

Comes with a free year of antivirus and firewall from eTrust too.

If you're unhappy you could always ask for your money back. ;-)

Noticed in a few of your posts that you like to type in all caps. Please
don't do this. It is considered shouting and may people think it rude.


Thanks in advance.

As everybody else has said you'll get it you need to be patient.
But I hope you don't think your talking directly to Microsoft by posting to
this newsgroup because your not. We are all here of our own free will to try
to help solve problems and that's about it.

Took less than two weeks in Australia (made family get it too - so 4 copies arrived in just under two weeks). It arrived in a post office prepaid envelope (a retail product usually) so they must have employed casuals to stuff envelopes as they obviousy weren't using their inhouse facilities..

There's no scam. I ordered it, and my copy finally arrived a few
days ago. It took a long time, much more than 3-10 business days,
but it arrived.

As others have said it has been arriving in around 3 weeks for most
people.

However....How can something that is totally "FREE" be a scam???

Geez.

Mine took closer to 5 weeks.

Exactly, BTW, would you like to help me recover several million dollars
from a Nigerian bank account? We can split the money, all you need do
is invest a few thousand to bribe officials and..... <- now, THAT'S a
scam!
