It's 26 degrees outside.The line for the Windows Vista launch event at the Nokia Theatre in NYC goes from the corner of 44th street all the way down and around the block to 45th street. On any other day, this spot would be filled with screaming TRL fans (the show is filmed two flights up at MTV). Today, it's too cold even for TRL fans. Instead, it's just frozen reporters waiting to see Bill Gates.
Thankfully my pal Stephen was in his office and let me in to defrost and post this update. Stay tuned for details on the party. Everyone who attended last week's Windows Gaming event went home with a $650 NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX graphics card. I doubt anyone will leave tonight's launch with anything as valuable.
