Microsoft in conjunction with music promoter Live Nation, launched a music wbsite to help promote Windows 7 dubbed “Section 7,” that features $7 concert tickets and $7 merchandise for select artists. "Section 7 offers music lovers a host of insider benefits, including exclusive ticket buying options, discounts, and opportunities to meet their favorite artists, fan clubs, great deals on tickets, merchandise and more," Microsoft said in an e-mail. The first 37,000 people who sign up also get a voucher for a free pair of tickets to a concert at a Live Nation club or theater. Microsoft says its trying to "simplify the music experience one concert at a time." That seems a stretch, but hey, free concert tickets sounds pretty good. Locations’re limited, though, so not everyone will’ve a local option.
