Vista and Office 2007 Launched

Yesterday saw the release of Vista and office 2007, at a midnight launch in Harvey Normans around Australia. This was marketed by Greg Harvey selling the first copy of Vista and a couple of them signed by Bill Gates. While this in itself would be exciting most institutions have had access to it for 2 months and those of us who risked the beta builds or even alpha builds may have been using for more than a year.

So what got me interested in the launch was the look of the casing that the product is sold in, and unfortunately I was rather disappointed! I expected a shiny metal case but only saw plastic, but at least it was not cardboard like so much other software is sold in.
