    The contest is closed.

    Blimey, I did not expect so many reactions in just one and a half hours. We initially have been wondering if we'd get even 100 entries. Thank you for your entries, Robintson will be handing out the keys starting tomorrow throughout the week. The key will be located in your PM (private message) box in the forums.

    Maybe if you change the "(closed)" of the title to the beginning is more effective. People wont read past grab. lol

    I knew I should have not gone out of the dog walk ! :D

    Mind you I guess that only works for Windows 7. My wife is still using Windows XP and I was wondering what the cheapest way to upgrade it was? She is used to it but as support is more and more non existent I feel she needs to make the jump. Or do you think it's got some life still left in it?

    Any thoughts welcome. MInd you she will probably still not want to move then I will get of ear ache about the icons being too small or such for 3 months if I did ;)

    Amazing how many users reacted. New members need to be more active when there is no contest.

    I hung on to XP as long as I could, but it's worth going to windows 10 now. Use a simple mod like Classic Shell to get rid of Win 10's horrible default UI.

    So my take from this contest is that lots and lots of members like to browse Guru3d while working...:D Or that there are lots of members who don´t have jobs...:eek:

    I stayed out of this, reason two fold.
    First, let new users grab something and understand that Guru3D contest is for real, and I really don't need a key, as I have so much keys I just don't use.
    In personal computing, I'll just use whatever flavour of Linux suits me at the moment and for work related stuff, I have Windows 8.1 keys, which can be used to validate even a Windows 10 install.

    Build a new PC that supports Windows 10 properly, then buy a cheap key from somewhere like VIP-Scdkey, where you can a get Win 10 Pro OEM key for £11 orWin 10 Home OEM for £10. You can also use a promo code from Youtuber Tech Yes City (visit his page) to get a 12% discount off these prices.

    Sure is interesting to see how many lurkers there are.

    Same here, except at work I use Linux too. I woke up this morning seeing this contest was already over, but, I wasn't planning on participating in it anyway. I was really just scrolling through the forums to see why specifically it ended.
