Everyone loves goodies and Microsoft seems to have finally realized this. They have been regularly adding new stuff to the Windows 7 Personalization Gallery. Earlier this month, we had covered the special Christmas Theme – Twinkle Wish. Now, Microsoft has released some more themes to get you in the holiday spirit. Do check them out. Cat and dog lovers will be pleasantly surprised.
The theme that caught my attention was Summit on the Summit. Summit on the Summit (or SOTS) is an expedition to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro organized by the Grammy-nominated musician Kenna.
Starting January 7th, Kenna and friends will climb Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise awareness about the global clean-water crisis. During their climb, they will be posting notes, pictures and tweets on the website summitonthesummit.com. Microsoft and HP are the technical sponsors for the event and the climbers will be using Windows 7 and Windows Live Messenger for staying connected. A SOTS themed Windows Live add-on pack is also available here.
Microsoft will obviously benefit from the partnership due to the associated attention. Nevertheless, it is nice to see Microsoft doing their bit to raise awareness about the campaign.
