On 15th February Microsoft did their islandwide Windows Vista launch. I have to say it was a remarkable ceremony and a very good planning.
The event started at right on the time and went on. I was surprised to see elephants and Kandian dancers in the celebration hall. The idea was to intergrate Sri Lankan traditions and customes with Microsoft Technologies, thereby giving the idea of “Sri Lankan Vista Launch” rather than just “Vista Launch”.
Also there were presents, much food, drinks and much more. Everyone was given a T-Shirt with Vista logo. And also there was a respectable amount of crowd ( I think it was more than 1000 ).
It was a good effort and I think their effort paid off at the end. Here are few pics of the event.
