60,000 page views over that darn computer of Marshall’s. That is quite impressive for one post about a Ferrari that became the talk of the internet the past few days. I think the controversy helped Microsoft in the Vista launch. Why do I say this?
Well coming from a rock n’ roll background such as mine, I know that controversy sells. Look for Microsoft’s PR agency to make this whole event come out looking like gold by the time Vista rolls out to the masses.
I predict Vista will be flying off the shelves. Of course as I have stated many times over, Rex Dixon does not have a computer or laptop that can run the new Microsoft OS. It will probably be as I have already said before, around 3rd quarter or later in 2007 before I will have gear good enough to run Vista.
Technically Speaking, unless someone such as Microsoft donates a laptop to Rex Dixon like they did for the bloggers to use, review, and return, or give away, or keep – Rex Dixon is using XP and also Linux for the time being. 🙂

Yes, it launched today. This version should have been out years ago, so there is really no applause coming from this blog.

It appears that over in Europe they mean what they say and back it up. It is quite apparent that possibly Adobe will force Microsoft to comply over in Europe at least before Vista is unleashed.

Vista is already being distributed on the internet by the nice folks that are known as pirates. The sites and bit torrent already has the copies.
Pirates are already passing around the release that just went from Redmond central over to the distribution making place. That was just last week, and this week, you can get your copy on bit torrent or other pirate sites!
Technically Speaking, the crippling features should deter you from getting it this way, but you know how pirates are! Never stopped them with XP!
