Microsoft’s reMix08 lands on the golden beaches of Brighton next month and The Register can help you get there on the cheap.

somewhat worth it
It is expensive but last year all attendees walked away with a free copy of Vista Ultimate (yay :¬þ ) and Expression Studio (Design, Blend, Web and Encoder). i probably consumed 200 quids worth of cakes, chinese food, and plenty o' grog as well

cost to get in £400
i really dont think so
