The day that has been in the making since Windows Vista came out is finally here. 22 October 2009 – General Availability Day for Windows 7.
The capstone event happens tomorrow, Thursday, with the Windows 7 Launch Event here in New York City. Steve Ballmer is the keynote speaker and from what I heard on Twitter today about his launch speech in Toronto it should be a good one.
I am here in New York to attend the launch event and witness this spectacle for myself. If you can not be here there will be a couple of ways to keep up with what is happening.
First off, Microsoft will live stream the launch audio/video like they have done in the past for these big events.
The Microsoft Press Pass page will have that link live prior to the scheduled 11:00 AM (New York City time) address by Steve Ballmer.
I will be live blogging the event using the Twitter Live Blog plugin on my site. The entry here will be named LiveBlogging the Windows 7 Launch. You will be able to follow the audio/video live stream from Microsoft and also my own personal view of the event through the live blogging entry. I also plan to snap as many pictures as possible and will upload those as time allows.
I am also sure there will be several other tech folks present at the launch event who will be twittering, texting and/or blogging as things happen. Something tells me there will not be a shortage of info.
Of course I then have to head to JFK and catch my late flight back home to Florida. The quick 24 hour trip will be over but it will have been a very full 24 hours.
Bring it on!
