A piece of my mind

Look Who’s “Wow” Now

Today I’m attending the “Grand Launching Microsoft Windows Vista” in Jakarta Convention Center. Windows Vista is the latest Microsoft Windows Operating System with the tagline “The ‘WOW’ Starts Now”. I thought the visitors won’t be as much because of 1 month delay of the event. In the venue, there are XL Business Solution booth, Acer booth, Nortel Network booth, Samsung booth, and many more. I was attending the presentation about developer track for Windows Vista. They introduce WCF for creating web services application, WPF for creating good looking application for Windows Vista and a demo for Windows Meeting Space. For the WPF presentation, my friend, Dondy Bappedyanto is the speaker. I’m quite impressed what WPF can do to make a beautiful looking applications. Not just desktop applications but also web applications. Unfortunately I didn’t get the door prize for that session :p

After that session, I show my friend and his friends my Ubuntu desktop with beryl installed. I showed them some beryl’s desktop effects and of course the famous 3D cube. And one of them said “Wow, this is better than Vista”. And one of them said, “why don’t you open a booth here?” hahaha…. yeaa right… An Ubuntu booth in Windows Vista launching :p

I wish I could get my hands on Windows Vista, so I could explore it more deeper. For knowledge purposes only of course :)

* ping Dondy, when will you give me an Original Windows Vista? I’ll trade it with the new Ubuntu CD :D *

    You didn’t get a trial of Vista? That was one of the highlights at the “New Day” launch here in Dallas; we got a free copy of Office ’07 and a 180 day trial of Vista Ultimate.
