Windows Vista NYC Launch

February 12th, 2007 by admin

Alright everyone, I am very sorry about these being so late. Any way pictures after the jump 


This is a picture of the band Angels and Airwaves who played before Bill came on to stage, the sound system at that theater literally moved my hair. 


Here is Angels and Airwaves again. The video in the back was really amazing showing people from all over the world using Vista. 

This is when Bill first came on stage. He first started talking about his “Wow” moment and how far we have come. 

The backdrop says it all :) 

Right here we see Bill and Steve about to introduce the partners on stage and give them a plaque with Windows Vista Home Basic upgrade disc, and Office 2007 Ultimate. 

Here is Bill again; he is talking about all the testing. For some reason he thought that TechBeta and TAP were the same as the CPP… Some testers, TechBeta were a bit upset about this because they felt they worked harder than CPP (which they did by filing bugs) any way. Windows Vista is the BEST version of Windows EVER! Get Vista!

Windows Vista Enterprise and Office 2007 release dates

November 3rd, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

Forget Windows Vista Ultimate (for a while, don’t forget it completely, for the love of God), we have things to release and they’re hitting us soon. For corporate and business users, Windows Vista Enterprise, the version of Vista designed for those who are in corporate network systems, will be released on November 30th 2006 of this year. Also with that date comes the 2007 Microsoft Office System, however disputing what the BBC says:

Microsoft will make available Office 2007 – its suite of business programs.

Whether that means the server products and the more “businessy” types of software in the 2007 Microsoft Office System is released with Vista Enterprise, I really don’t know. I think it means the whole Office System, but we’ll have to wait and see. The full article from the BBC quotes as:

From 30 November corporate customers of the software giant will be able to get their hands on the next version of the operating system.

Also on that date Microsoft will make available Office 2007 – its suite of business programs. Home users will have to wait until January 2007 to get hold of a copy of the Vista software. Vista is the long-awaited update of the Windows operating system that was originally slated to be released in August 2006. The software has been under development for more than five years. The release will be a simultaneous global launch.

The software is a major overhaul of Windows and updates many of the core technologies. New elements include improved security, an improved 3D interface, plus new sound and networking technologies. Vista, known as Longhorn during its gestation, will be available in six separate versions to match the differing needs of computer users. Three of these are tuned for businesses, two are for home users and one will be for developing nations.

Microsoft has yet to give details of the prices of the different versions but it has released information about what PCs will have to do to run the software. Many PC makers are now selling “Vista-ready” computers. In the US the software will be unveiled by Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer at an event at the New York Stock Exchange.
