Vista - Officially Here!

| Posted: Jan 30, 2007 12:59 am

And here 'tis.... Microsoft's all-official on the introduction of their new mainstream Vista operating system into the consumer market.

 



NEW YORK - Jan. 29, 2007 - On Jan. 30 the most significant product launch in Microsoft Corp.'s history culminates in the release to consumers of the Windows Vista™ operating system and Microsoft® Office 2007. Starting tomorrow, these two flagship products will be available in more than 70 countries, in 19 languages (with 99 languages anticipated by the end of the year), and at more than 39,000 retail stores and online. The launch marks the achievement of an unprecedented collaboration between Microsoft and its customers and partners, and ushers in an era in which personal computing is easier, safer and more enjoyable than ever before.

 

"Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007 will transform the way people work and play," said Bill Gates, chairman of Microsoft. "Personal computers have become a key part of the daily lives of almost a billion people worldwide. Millions of consumers had a hand in helping us design, test and create the most exciting versions of Windows and Office we've ever released. Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007 squarely address the needs and aspirations of people around the globe."

 


And to follow up the launch, there's a bit of coverage on it floating around. As mentioned earlier on, Techgage have some gaming performance results with it here, whilst Toms Hardware pit it against XP with some interesting benchmark results, and the FiringSquad post up the first part of their Vista performance article as well.
