Windows 7 arrives in Singapore Event !

Ladies and Gentleman,

Announcing the arrival of Windows 7 to Asia on 22nd October ! A media event was launched to welcome Windows 7 in Singapore and I was invited by Microsoft and Weber Shandwick to attend this wonderful and exciting event. I would like to take this opportunity to say a Big THANK YOU to Microsoft for organising a wonderful media launch event and Weber Shandwick for inviting me to be part of the media launch !

The launch was held at 72-13 Mohd Sultan Road, a great place to launch Windows 7, upon entering inside, it was a great sight to see many different desktops, laptops, notebooks and netbooks, all on display, from various different brands such as Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, iiView, Lenovo, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba, all installed with Windows 7. After my registration and catching up with Ashwin from Weber Shandwick, I began exploring around and started playing with new toys !

Soon after, we were ushered inside to another hall, with people from different forms of media, overseas visitors and partners of Microsoft. After settling down, the master of ceremony, Stephen Forshaw, kick start the launch event, a presentation on the history of Windows before breaking up into groups, visiting 4 different lifestyle segments whereby Windows 7 operates and thrives in.

They were home lifestyle, outdoors, office and games ! Allan Wu, local TV star was in charge of the outdoors segment, while Eunice Olsen, well known actress, was in charge of the home lifestyle segment ! Visiting the 4 different segments, all of us there had a better insight of how Windows 7 fits into your serious business/working life to leisure/outdoor lifestyle, there is something for everyone ! Windows 7 had made a lasting impression on me, great improvements from Vista. I would go further in-depth into Windows 7 soon, some key points and wonderful improvements.

Finally, before leaving from the Windows 7 launch party, there was an awesome gift for us to bring back home, it was a Samsonite messenger bag with Windows 7 logo, containing goodies and guess what ………………………………………………. ……. Windows 7 Ultimate Box !!!!!!!

A Very BIG THANK YOU to Microsoft !!!
