Announcing the Windows Vista Coach Tour

Nick White has written up a blog entry regarding a road trip planned between January 16 and 24, 2007. The trip is regarding the "Wow" starts now campaign for Microsoft Windows Vista.

"I and a few Windows community influencers will hop on a custom-wrapped Windows Vista bus and visit major cities on the East coast of the United States: Nashville, Lexington, Cincinnati, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, Charlotte, Savannah, Jacksonville, Orlando, Gainesville, Atlanta and places in between. We'll then return to Nashville to wrap up the tour."

You can catch the Windows guys in the cities as well as on the road. Why would you want to? First off, there will be a custom designed coach bus based around the Windows Vista "energy" theme (Vista's default wallpaper). This isn't just Microsoft we're talking about; AMD will be part of the branding too. The coach will be equipped with free Wi-Fi so that you can fully utilize, in the very comfortable lounge area, the numerous systems running Windows Vista. An Xbox 360 will be present along with refreshments, not that you won't have anything to do: the team is only too happy to answer your Windows Vista questions.

Secondly, features such as Ultimate Extras, speech recognition, Tablet functionality, and the way Media Center works with the Xbox 360 as an extender will all be showed off. Thirdly, and what people are probably most interested in, there will be various prizes to give away. Videos and still photos of the trip will be available on the Windows Vista Team Blog on a day-to-day basis. For those who already have the Vista Sidebar, a gadget will be available for tracking the group on the road.
