Microsoft Windows PowerShell released to web

Actually I'm not quite sure why I am just keeping posting about MS releases on my blog. Mainly because I have not much time to write about other interesting things and I want to keep you, my (2? 3? :P) readers up to date with these most anticipated releases.

Today is the turn of POWERSHELL, previously code-named "Monad" shell. The shell that should have been part of Windows Vista but was later dropped and developed as stand-alone.

Microsoft official Windows Vista and Office 2007 launch... and free copies!

Today Microsoft is officially launching Windows Vista and Office 2007.

Although Volume License copies are available for download since some time now* from Microsoft Licensing website, the official date for Business editions availability is today.

To celebrate the launch, they are making some noise, everybody everywhere is talking about it.

And... they launched two brand new sites.

The first one is a blog, emphatically called ready for a new day, obviously they wish to hint us that Vista is bringing a new dawn in computer history. Maybe a bit excessive but... this is Microsoft marketing after all :P

And then we come to a something more interesting website, at least for our friends living in the U.S. of A. Why, are you asking. First, the name of the site: The Power of Together. And here is the piece of news: Microsoft is promising to give away for free a copy of Windows Vista Business and Microsoft Office Professional!

But you need to fulfill the following requirements:

- "you must [...] participate in at least three (3) qualifying web casts and/or virtual lab sessions within 30 days of registration"
- and (sigh) it "is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States (includes District of Columbia) 18 years of age or older"

(excerpts taken from the official rules page)

So, my dear American friends... Go and grab them while they're hot! ;-)

The websites:

Ready for a new day

The Power of Together

* UPDATE: I do not know what happened but the Licensing website is now urging "early adopters" (like me :P) to re-download the Business Edition. And they are no more linking from the site home page the Enterprise Edition telling instead that it will be available "soon after Vista Business launch", I hope that does not mean we will have to get that one again too.
