  • 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."

  • Microsoft turned the Nokia Theatre into a pre-launch party, with music, drinks and food for the 1,000+ attendees who were invited to the January 29 event.
