Microsoft has finally pulled it off, the longest product name ever: Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate UPGRADE Limited Numbered Signature Edition. It was so long, I couldn’t fit it in the neowin title box by itself. Regardless of how long the name is, I’m sure you can figure out what it all means, but in case you cannot, let me break it down for you. This flavour of Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate is only available as an upgrade, meaning you need to own a previous version of Windows. “Limited Numbered” means there are only 20,000 copies available. “Signature Edition” refers to the fact that the box is signed by Bill Gates. This unique version of Vista is priced at $259 and will become available January 30 along with all the other Vista Editions (minus Business, of course). Microsoft fanboys, I wish you luck in getting your hands on this one.
Amazon describes the product: “Signed by Bill Gates himself: Windows Vista Ultimate is Microsoft’s powerful new operating system for the home and business user. Thinking of upgrading? Get this limited-availability Signature Edition signed by the world’s richest man and own a little piece of history.”
