I'm sure there's a perfectly innocent reason why they want a copy of your ID card too. :laugh

1st Prize - 1 Copy of Windows Vista
2nd Prize - 2 Copies of Windows Vista

a few years ago there was a bit of a protest by the beta testers for Visual Studio 2005.
The prizing structure for the Beta testers was something like:
The 10 best testers were all being given copies of Visual Studio 2005 professional (worth a few hundred quid)
The next 50 best beta testers were all being given an xbox for their efforts (worth a couple of hundred quid).

Given than VS comes on a few CD's which can be printed off for a few pence there was a general consensus that MS was not exactly being fair with its prize giving.
