Big question:

To take advantage of this deal:

Be a business owner, or an employee for an existing business firm. Or you can BS your way through and make up a business name

I've read that offer several times. Something don't seem right....well, to me anyway.

Do you actually get Windows XP Pro with that? Or do you just get ketchup with your french fries?

Anyone done it and got it?

I recieved mine this weekend and it's pretty cool. The bobble head doll and the xp baseball look like they could be collectors items one day. Now, if I can just get the numbers from the cd without opening it....
