Vista Lab After Hours

January 7, 2005

Bill Gates (final?) 2007 CES Keynote

We had front-row seats in the auditorium for the speech. Supposedly.

However, since our seats were given away, we repaired to the private viewing room for real-time streaming of the keynote.

Turns out that it was the better option: a more enthusiastic crowd, food, drinks, better sound, huge screen.

While I liked that the speech was on point, and stressed the importance (and inevitability) of Vista™, I was somewhat disappointed by the fact that there wasn’t a live demo of the newly-announced Windows Home Server.

Bill Gates will always be a hero of mine.
