Earlier today we reported that Microsoft rolled out IE10 to the 700 million Windows 7 users out there. We now have some more good news: you can win some pretty cool prizes in the new “Share your Windows 8 Story” video contest.

People keeping track of these things will remember that Windows 8 was released for general availability on the 26th of October, 2012. To celebrate the fact that its touch-optimized operating system has been out there for 4 months now, Microsoft is running a video contest and it is putting up some very cool prizes.

The videos must be submitted between February 22 and March 22. The voting phase will be between March 7 and March 22. And the judging period will be between March 23 and March 31. The winners of the competition will get their hands on these cool gifts.
