Today I finally attained my free copy of Windows Vista, since I have been using a pirated version for 3+ months without problems yet. So this is rather a victory lap than really having the urgency to use this copy. Nonetheless, Best Buy gave me a Windows Vista Ultimate (Simplified Chinese Version) in which I can dl 11 different language packs with no problem, so it is actually an upgrade from what was originally packed in my window (Home Premium Version)
And to make this victory lap sweeter, Barry came to deliver me the copy. He didn't apologize or anything but when he came over and asked if I were the person he had to deliver it to. I replied with a snickering "Yes...Don't you remember ME?" He of course didn't answer the rhetorical question, but it didn't matter. Because, in the end he is handing me a free copy of Vista with a retail value of RMB2423. Victory has never felt soooo sweet.
The good thing was after I sent the Marketing Director a msg of Thanks, he said he will call me for some feedback. And I think that is probably the best thing, as I do have many suggestions to make as I do not want any of this happening to anyone else.
End note. Only this Chinese saying can fully describe it is "正义长存!!!!" (translates to "Let the truth prevail!)
Would you just look at that..Thought this day would never come
