Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Competition Microsoft PR agency August One was tickled by our recent pieceMS Canada on slippery slope. The article outlines MS Canada's incentive scheme whereby buying a copy of MS Office secures the punter a free toboggan.

August One fully agreed with our indignation that this class giveaway was not being made available elsewhere. So much so in fact, that they have kindly offered Reg readers the chance to win a toboggan of their very own. Microsoft itself then chipped in, adding a copy of Office XP to the prize booty (as soon as it's available, natch.)

All you have to do to enter this exciting compo is tell us what preposterous freebie you think Microsoft should bundle with Office XP. Email your entries to us here. Mark the subject 'toboggan'.

Rules

The entry deadline is 5.00pm GMT on Friday 23rd February.
There is no cash alternative, so any winner from the Congo or Amazon will have to think of an cunning alternative use for a toboggan.
The answer must be 'funny' in that it must contain humour of some sort and not a load of moaning about software or the weather. Idealogues are welcome to their say - somewhere else.
The winner will be announced on Monday 26th February.
