As Bill Gates declares the ‚"Wow starts now‚" technology activists declare the launch of Vista to be an "Ow starts now," for citizens rights.
Greeting lunch guests at the swank Cipriani's in midtown Manhattan, and later at the nearby Nokia Theater launch party, protesters wearing Hazmat suits and carrying banners calling for Vista to be dumped helped provide an alternative vista for Microsoft's celebrity attendees.
