Here is the chance to win the sweepstakes  on the eve of SQL Server 2012 release 1st Anniversary. Here is the text from SQL Server blog:


This month, we are celebrating the one year anniversary of SQL Server 2012, and we’d like to give a little shout out to our community to say, “Happy anniversary!” We can hardly believe that it was just one year ago that SQL Server 2012 was released to manufacturing. When we take a look back at how far we’ve come over the past year since this exciting occasion, we’re amazed by all the fantastic moments we’ve enjoyed with you! From the release of the TechNet Radio SQL Server 2012 and Fantastic 12 of 2012 series last year, to the great events we’ve attended together like PASS Summit and Strata, we are proud to continue this great journey onward with you!


On this first anniversary of SQL Server 2012, we are well over 63,000 fans strong on the SQL Server Facebook pagefollow, and nearly 128,000 fans strong on the SQL Server Twitter channelfollow.
