Support free software! Buy this copy of Windows Vista Ultimate!
A somewhat ... unusual charity auction. 100% of profit goes to http://ubuntu-be.org, the official local ubuntu team for Belgium.
The story behind this original boxed MS Windows Vista Ultimate Edition is quite exceptional.
With ubuntu-be.org, we had a booth at a conference on IT in education. One of us, François, started talking to the people at the Microsoft booth and received this box as a gift (carrot/bribe?) from a Microsoft employee.
Since he only uses Ubuntu on his pc, he doesn't need this MS Windows Vista thing. He decided ubuntu-be.org could use money better than a copy of Vista. So here's your chance to support free software by buying Windows Vista!
