I went to the Boston Windows XP launch this morning. Three Thousand people showed up and there was still enough coffee, juice and muffins for everyone. At the break, there was a nice selection of Evian or Perrier water along with some king sized candy bars, Smartfood and NutriGrain bars. I filled out a survey and got a t-shirt. Overall, it was a nice event. They even gave me a coupon for discounted parking in the hotel.
Oh yeah, the presentation was well done. An audience member won $500 by playing Microsoft's new bowling game.
