UK Windows Vista And Office 2007 Launch Tour

UK Windows Vista And Office 2007 Launch Tour Windows attend Road Trip stop off at the University of Northumbria

By Windows, Published 28th January 2007

On Friday 26th January Windows attended the UK Windows Vista And Office 2007 Launch Tour Road Trip at the University of Northumbria. Turnout was less than expected so an informal demonstration replaced the presentation on other stops, however it was still informative and well received by those who attended.

Four Microsoft employees were on the road trip, one took the tour car back to Reading right away, so the other three could do the demo, this included showcasing the Gadgets featured in the Windows Sidebar, plus a general overview of the new Windows Vista features like Search, new applications and design methods also.

The New York Times reader application was demonstrated showing some of what could be acheived using Windows Vista, plus this lead into the examples of the Windows Presentation Foundation of WPF language XAML such as XAMLPad and some examples using the language to create some interesting effects.
