It's the end of an era -- and the start of another. Microsoft finally launched Windows Vista in New York on January 29-30.
Ballmer and a handful of high-level executives from Intel, AMD, Dell, Toshiba and Hewlett-Packard, answered press and analyst questions at a kick-off lunch on January 29 in New York.
The "Bad Vista" contingent was visible, handing out Linux disks, as Vista launch attendees waited in the freezing cold to enter the Nokia Theatre in Times Square for the launch event.
Overheard while waiting in the launch line: "You have questions about Vista's DRM?" Passerby: "No, I was just wondering where you got those yellow suits."
