Windows Vista NYC Debut

Microsoft intends a high-profile launch of its upcoming Windows Vista OS similar to that of its predecessors, according to a report by the Seattle Times. Scheduled for January 29th, the event -- dubbed "The Wow Starts Now" -- will combine a press luncheon at Cipriani's in downtown Manhattan with a public event at 1515 Broadway in Times Square to celebrate the launch of the upgrade. The party will likely eclipse the November 30th launch of Vista for business, which was marked by Microsoft's ringing the NASDAQ bell.

The spectacle will represent the end of a five year saga for the beleaguered Windows XP replacement, which missed shipping in time for the all-important holiday season and prompted a last-minute upgrade coupon program offering upgrade discounts to hesitant buyers.
