    1) Thanks, that was helpful because we all have ZERO computer experience.
    2) Was that one long sentence?
    3)
    Honestly, number 3 is on me, because I should have stopped reading at this point. I'm a rere.

    There's a slight difference between an offer of hardware from Microsoft's official website and some 'kick ass stuff' from some shady unknown site.

    What's so weird? The posts in this thread make more sense than nearly all the rest in OT.

    Anyway, it's not as if I need one at the moment, my 40GB iRiver H140 is adequate for now ;).

    Yeah, because Microsoft is in business to spread viruses and erase computers.

    Well it may be free, but I'm not going to bail out Microsoft if they screwed up and overstocked on them. For comparison, I can get a 256MB USB stick for £10 now, so a 16MB would be... £0.63? And for that, Microsoft gets all your details and clears some of their warehouse.

    M$ already has all my details, I have a Passport account. This drive won't touch my home comp until it either does or does not blow up some random work computer. And then gets erased/formatted about 10 times.
