That's All It's Worth

One month after I sent in the form, I finally got the money for the Vista license. 30 Euro. Not as much as you have to spend if you want to buy it but who wants to get Windows? I wouldn’t use it if I’d get it for free. And I could get it for free as our university offers a legal version on the MANIAC server.

Lenovo EMEA

Lenovo called me back when I was waiting for my appointment to get two more vaccinations. Influenza and Rabies. The friendly man said I get 30 Euro for the Windows license and that he has already sent me the information per mail. Interesting things:

  • According to his contact information he is a Customer Relations Specialist Senior EMEA situated in Slovakia.
  • I shall send in the Anytime Upgrade CD of Vista. My computer came with a hidden partition but no CDs.
  • The pdf form was created October 29th, 2007, so they had dealt with the problem before I called.

I’m really pleased with the Lenovo customer service.
