Where Vista Fails

I still remember the day very clearly. It was Monday, October 27, 2003. Several thousand developers and, let's face it, quite a few garden variety Windows enthusiasts charged into Hall A at the Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) like teenage girls at a Justin Timberlake concert, volleying for the best seats. I've been to more Bill Gates keynotes than I can count, and this was the first time I ever saw anyone climb over other people in order to secure a better view. (No offense to Mr. Gates, but he's not exactly a dynamic speaker.) It was PDC 2003 (see my review) and everything was right with my world.

The purpose of this melee? Gates and Microsoft were about to unveil Windows Vista Paul Thurrott's SuperSite for Windows via OSNews.com
