The rules enforce benefits and harder competition. I think the words limit are there to ensure Abhi doesn't spend too much time on a single post, but unless you have written too much you shouldn't need to worry... Nice that Abhi isn't strict on the rules, it gives a lot more chance for the people that didn't check the rules, while it wouldn't differ much in the chances of those already eligible.

Anyways, I wish everyone good luck; may the best, the second best and the third best win! :-)

Okay...some last moment excitement here! :P
Reviewed all the entries, discussed with Jatin too. Results coming out any moment now!

@The Black Manba, sorry buddy, just a little late. I can't bend the most basic rule, that of time, hope you understand. Better luck next time.

@Ace Starr,
What TomWij said. And moreover, we had to put some limit on the words, it goes like this everywhere wish such contests.

Thanks Elijah? for those nice words, your entry was good too. :)

I too hope contests like this keep on happening.
I for one can say, I'd try to do a similar contest when Office 2010 gets released.

Thanks everyone for being such a good sport.

I would like to thank Jatin, Abhi and lareeth for this great contest. What makes this forum an exceptional one is the quality and not the quantity of its members.

Keep up the good work everyone!

Congrats to the winners. B)

I am jealous :ph34r: but i'll get over it. :) Hate loosing, especially since I thought the odds were pretty good. The probability of my winning should be 3/37 or 3/38 - nice, but it actually turned out to be 4/37 or 4/38 and i still couldn't make it. Just not my day I guess. :o
I don't see myself participating in Office contests because I have a perfectly good, working Office 2007 and if I post and somehow win, it won't be using it much. That would be such a waste. So i guess I'll have to wait till Windows 8 to win a contest I really wish to win here :o

@abhi:
1) Great contest mate. Don't mind me, keep as many contest as you can. It attracts a lot of guests and encourages them to sign up.

2) In the other thread, you had asked me why I hadn't read through again. Well I kept coming back again and again (I needed the keys) but the first post said it all and so I wanted to wait till the contest got over to read this thread completely. Anyways, I did shrug off my laziness and signed up for facebook. what i want to say is a) you could have updated the first post and removed the facebook clause(s) from it. b ) Why exactly did it become a requirement? (just curious... u can ignore if u like)

3) Who is that Chick? :D

@InlineSkate, where was your entry? Why didn't you submit/edit it?

@Ace Starr,
Don't be jealous, you know everyone can't win...right? You did good, that should make you happy.
We decided on keeping the Facebook clause, so that the WinMatrix Facebook Page also gets attention of the members, and more and more members join it. Later on, some members were not happy about this being a condition, so it was no longer mandatory.

And, I don't know who that chick is! :D

@Jatin, You're welcome! :)

Same here. *shakes hands with Afzal*

Thank you all for being part of this nice opportunity, I'm happy not to be on the first or last place as Professional seems right to me.
Watch out for my next post in this thread, I'm planning on doing a reinstall pretty soon and once I have fully customized the various aspects I will post a screenshot together with a quick shot of what I notice being different in Windows 7 RTM. (As I'm still using RC at this very moment...)

And yes, losing something you really look out for (sometimes there are those prices you really want for free) is indeed annoying, I really don't like it... I share compassion with those that really were in some need of the price.
