Free Copy Windows7

Windows 7 beta testers to get free copy of final product

Microsoft will announce today that they will be offering a free version of Windows 7 Ultimate to those who participated in the Windows 7 Beta Program.

A letter from Microsoft will be sent to the participants stating :

Thank you for doing your part in making Windows 7 great! As a member of the technical beta program you took the time to download, install and give us your feedback on Windows 7 during development. Over the last 7 months you have participated in chats, live meetings and newsgroups as well as reported bugs to help us find and fix many issues. To recognize your outstanding contribution to the product we are pleased to offer you a complimentary copy of Windows 7 for your personal use.

Details:

  • All current members of our English technical and international mini-beta programs are eligible.
  • We are offering you a full (non-upgrade) copy of Windows 7 Ultimate Edition for your own personal use, not to be resold.
  • You will be able to get access to your copy one of two ways:

A) To get up and running quickly you will be able to download your copy and get your product key via Microsoft Connect. English downloads will be available August 6th and other languages will follow as they become available.

B) Members of our English beta program have an alternative. We have reserved a limited amount of boxed retail copies that you can choose to receive instead. These are ‘first come, first served’. If you opt to have us ship you the boxed copy you should be aware that it will take much longer until you will be up and running on the final version. We will need time to manufacture and ship the copies to you. This means that you may not receive them until they are available on shelves October 22nd or later. Also, for people outside the United States you may be required to pay duties or other local taxes upon receipt.

Instructions and forms for choosing one of the above options will be available on Microsoft Connect on Monday August 3rd.

On behalf of the entire Windows product team, THANK YOU!

Paul

TechNews with TechNYK

July 13, 2009 2 comments

I apologise to my all my readers for my absence as I went into hibernation for a week due to unforeseen circumstances but now NYK is back with a bang so be ready for the feast. So, let me first update you all about what all has happened this week in the world of tech obviously with NYK humor embedded 🙂

  • Google plans to launch Google Chrome OS (I wonder what happened to Android Dreams?)
  • Microsoft sees light at the end of the tunnel with Silverlight(Adobe Flash is way Ahead Dear MS)
  • Google Apps is out of BETA (Oh Really! I though it will stay till Chrome OS is launched)
  • All Windows Vista system sold starting August 2009 will have an option to upgrade to Windows 7 once its launched(Xp Users doomed yet again)
  • RIP Michael: your passing has shown the power of Twitter(MJ – King of Pop/Web/World forever)
  • Sarah Brown’s G8 summit tweets and blogs(Has the BBC server crashed?)
  • Luxury Notebooks are non-starters(So are Luxury cars like Jaguar & Land Rover)
  • Windows 7 Build 7600 rumored as RTM(It’s not a rumor its a fact,we have launched it)
  • Nvidia Launches 3d graphics card(Take of your specs and put on the 3d glasses)

Enough News for a week, now its time for some freebies to be distributed to all my loyal readers  and specially to animation enthusiast:

Anime Studio is a proprietary vector-based 2D animation software for animators originally distributed by LostMarble, later by e frontier. The software comes in two different versions, named Anime Studio and Anime Studio Pro, the first being restricted in terms of possible length and image size, as well as not having all the functions of the Pro version. Anime Studio is available for the Windows and Macintosh operating systems.

The software was originally developed under the name “Moho” by LostMarble, the last Moho version 5.4 was identical with the first release of Anime Studio Pro. Current release version is 6.0. LostMarble is still the home of Papagayo, a free lip sync software which works with Anime Studio.

Anime Studio, despite what its name suggests, is also capable of other styles of animation. It can export its animations as flash cartoons, create cutout-style animation, and, within its restrictions, mimic some pencil-drawn animation. Since it features some basic 3D functionality, it can be seen as a 2½D program. Short films, especially those which tell their story in one scene, can be produced relatively quickly compared to other programs, because of the usage of vector morphing instead of frame-by-frame animation. On the 6th of June, 2009, Smith Micro released Anime Studio 6, which has more features, including motion tracking, lip-syncing and more.

Features:

  • Anime Studio features layers of different types for artwork as well as for grouping and switching assets. Layers can be animated in perspective.
  • Layer ordering can be animated (since v5.6)
  • Camera movements.
  • Pressure-sensitive tablets in combination with brush shapes can be used to create natural-looking strokes. Artwork created in Anime Studio is basically resolution-independent.
  • The animator can create a skeleton of Bones to which pieces of artwork are attached. The skeleton works with inverse and forward kinematics and makes it easier to animate characters.
  • Tweening of all layer, vector shapes, and bone animation.
  • Styles for outlines and fills.
  • Masks are possible.
  • Anime Studio has some 3D abilities, useful for multiplane camera effects and even complex set building.
  • Anime Studio supports several file formats to import pictures and video. Alpha channels of PNG and video files are recognised.
  • Multiple soundtracks can be added. In combination with Papagayo Anime Studio provides automatic lip sync.
  • Anime Studio exports films to .swf, but without certain effects which are not part of the .swf file format. Export to video or image includes everything and can be done in any resolution. Videos can be rendered with an alpha channel.
  • Most tools are completely scriptable

Free Copy – Ashampoo Burning Studio 2009 Advanced

If like me you also thought that NERO is the best answer to burn a disc(HD-DVD,Bluray-Disc,DVD,MD or a CD) then I have a surprise for you as you get a much better product which is not over-hyped like NERO is and that too just for $49.99. But, what if I give it for free?? Yes, you read it right, I am giving this one helluva software Ashampoo Burning Studio 2009 Advanced with massive feature’s absolutely free to all my readers. Just click the link at the bottom of the post and get your free copy.

Easy, not limited

chip_download of the day Anyone who has ever struggled with complicated disc burning software is always amazed when they try Ashampoo Burning Studio. This is how software should be: Instead of studying complicated manuals you just choose what you want to do and then follow the instructions displayed on the screen. For example, to make a DVD you select Create a Video DVD and the program guides you through the steps of adding clips, building menus and burning the disc.

This doesn’t mean the program has been “dumbed down”: Burning Studio is a complete and powerful disc burning suite that also satisfies advanced users with all the tweaking features you expect from less accessible programs.

General program improvements

You also get a brand new Movie Player with a significantly improved video rendering engine and a modern graphical interface.

Slideshow Editor

The Slideshow Editor makes it a snap to turn your photos into impressive DVD slideshows with animated graphical menus. You can also include video clips in your slideshows. Just select your photos, videos and background music tracks and burn. Here too, you can produce shows instantly by choosing ready-to-use themes or get creative and design your own. Burning Studio comes with a set of attractive themes and you can download more from the Ashampoo website.

Cover Editor

The Cover Editor has everything you need for labeling your discs and producing cool covers for jewel cases, slim cases, DVD cases and Blu-ray cases. You can design your own or just enter a title and select one of the pre-designed themes for instant point-and-click results – it also imports track data from your discs automatically. The Cover Editor prints both on a wide range of predefined label formats and directly onto discs on printers that support this function.

Deleting files doesn’t work.
