“To receive a free product key and get Windows 8 Media Center Pack, provide a valid email address in the space provided. Once you receive your free product key through the email address you provided, follow the instructions for adding Windows 8 Media Center Pack that appear later on this page,” the instructions read.

Microsoft will unveil the new OS later today, with the product scheduled to hit shelves tomorrow morning. Windows 8 will be aimed not only at the traditional desktop computer, but also at tablets and mobile phones.

Windows RT, the company’s very own OS designed to run on tablet devices, will debut on Microsoft’s Surface, one of the products that will be launched today alongside the new OS.
