Road trip! By now I'm sure you've heard that the "Wow" starts now. Well, now we're bringing the "Wow" to you! From 16-24 January, I and a few Windows community influencers will hop on a custom-wrapped Windows Vista bus and visit major cities on the East coast of the United States:
- Washington, DC
- ... and points in between
We'll then return to Nashville to wrap up the tour on the 24th.
There'll be tons of chances for you to spot us at places in and around these cities and also on the highways in-between. The coach itself is pretty sharp -- it's wrapped with a custom design based on the Windows Vista "energy" theme that is the default wallpaper. Our friends at AMD will be part of the branding as well. On board there'll be free Wi-Fi if you need to check your mail and a very comfortable lounge area where you can test-drive numerous systems running Windows Vista and an Xbox 360, or enjoy a refreshment while chatting with us about Windows Vista.
This will be a really exciting tour. I've never been a part of such an extensive road trip like this before and look forward to meeting regular folks interested in seeing demos of Windows Vista in person. We'll show off several PCs running Windows Vista while demo'ing things like Ultimate Extras, speech recognition, Tablet functionality, and the way Media Center works with the Xbox 360 as an extender. We've got some cool stuff to give away, and we'll capture video and still photos of our interactions so that you all on this blog can be a part of the action. We'll also be prepared to answer the many questions we anticipate that the folks will have.
