Canada trumps US in Vista launch

Canada trumps US in Vista launch

US business customers will get their hands on Windows Vista and Office 2007 when Microsoft launches the products on 30 November at an event in New York.

However, it will be released in Canada slightly earlier than in the US. Microsoft will hold New Day for Business events throughout Canada starting in Edmonton, Alberta, on 23 November.

The company says the events "will mark the business availability of three major releases from Microsoft. " In addition to Vista and Office 2007, Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 also will be released to business customers at these events.

Microsoft chief executive officer Steve Ballmer will be on hand for the New York launch, along with Microsoft partners and customers. The event will be held at the Nasdaq Stock Market in midtown Manhattan and the Marriott Marquis in Times Square.

Even though Vista and Office 2007 will be available to US and Canadian business customers this month, many such customers have said they likely will not upgrade to Vista right away but will hold off until they do hardware upgrades or can justify the cost of the new OS.

Microsoft is hoping customers will deploy Vista and Office 2007 together, and is planning press interviews in New York next week to specifically discuss the benefits of doing so.

The general release of Vista and Office 2007 is still on track for January 2007.
