VIDEO: Bill Gates launches Windows Vista

Bill Gates Celebrates Worldwide General Availability of Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office System
From Times Square in New York City, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates hosted the worldwide launch of Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office System. The celebration paid tribute to the millions of Microsoft customers, partners and product testers around the world who provided input and feedback on these products — helping Microsoft transform the way people communicate, create and share content, and access information and entertainment in the new digital age.

(In case you’re wondering who that band is playing "What a Wonderful World" on stage, that’s "Angels & Airwaves" with lead singer Tom DeLonge of Blink 182 fame.)

On a personal note, I truly hope everyone will take the time to try it and give it a fair chance:  I assure you that you’ll like it…  It’s hands down better than anything we’ve ever built before and it’s a bottom up rewrite of many of the things that have absolutely bugged the hell out of you before about Windows. 

If you remember one thing, keep this in mind:

The computer folks on the radio, the folks blogging about Windows Vista, the "cyberguy" on the TV news station, the geek that lives next door:  If you hear them say "Don’t upgrade unless you have a new computer", you can consider them boneheads and write them off.

I’m going to write more about this later but I’m getting really tired of theseself-important know-nothings that are claiming Windows Vista requires 2GB RAM, 128MB video card, & a 2.1Ghz Processor.   I’m doing this blog and watching my Slingbox from an old 1.1Ghz machine with 1GB RAM and a 16MB video adapter… RUNNING WINDOWS VISTA JUST FINE, THANK YOU.
