I got another pack of trial CD's today. They missed out Vista and some other CD's even though I ticked the box. They must be getting sick of sending me them!

How did you get Windows Server 2003 in the grey boxes? I got some copies of it from Partner Market and TechNet Evaluations, but I only got the other type of box that you've got (the one with orange squares on the front).

Also, where did Virtual Server come from? It's not on Partner Market or anywhere - I can only find the one on the international Microsoft site, but you have to pay $20 shipping and handling The UK Microsoft site seems to be the only one where the stuff is truly free (I've got all the other CDs!) but there's no mention of Virtual Server on there.

They seem to have stopped doing the Windows XP cap, bag and fluffy things that I got off Partner Market a while ago too - did anyone else get those?

That was what Microsoft was shipping to any ole joe-blo if you ordered it
up until the middle of last year, for free too.! I got one whilst available,
lost count how many times iv'e installed & activated it, they must allow
at least 10 activations with it..

Where did the Virtual Server one come from though? I can't find that anywhere (I presume it's the full version, not a trial, as VS is now free, or did you get it before they made it free?).

Free as well.
That one's not free sadly - you start ordering it and then find they want $20 for shipping and handling I've looked everywhere for this and can't find it - all the stuff on the UK MS site is usually free but they don't seem to offer Virtual Server.
