ANALYSTS ARE are being invited to the release of Microsoft's long awaited Vista operating system and Office 2007 tomorrow. There will be a bit of shin-dig somewhere swanky in New York and London tomorrow. It will be for businesses only and the rest of the unwashed riff-raff - including the INQ - will be kept outside.
Vista will be available for ordinary consumers on January 30, 2007, according to Microsoft co-president of platforms Jim Allchin. Then the marketing machine will switch into gear.
