LAS VEGAS, NV, January 7, 2007 (PodTech.net) — Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates kicked off CES 2007 with a keynote address that was long on demos and short on pizzazz. It was all about Vista and Vista as connector of the digital lifestyles and experiences. There’s no question that Vista, due out to the public in 22 days, is a powerful operating system, a huge improvement over previous versions of Windows, and has plenty of nifty features, notably controllability in 3-D with Microsoft’s X-Box 360 controller — but Gates’ more than hour-long, dry rundown of features, all digilently supported by (too many) demos left PodTech’s Catherine Girardeau a bit underwhelmed. PodTech.net brings you edited selections from Gates’ presentation.
