Sneak peak at the next version of Windows – Windows Vista, MTV Urge Music Service, Windows Mobile, Media Center, XBOX 360 and more…

Windows Vista is still a year away, but you can get a sneak peak into the next version by watching the webcast of the Bill Gates Keynote at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2006. The keynote offers a live demonstration of some of the "fantastic new features" of Vista. The video is rather long, so here is a time index:

  • 8:52 – Bill Gates Keynote
  • 24m50s Vista Presentation by group product manager (definitely worth a look!)
  • 36:50 – President of MTV Networks – Announcing "Urge" Music Network 2 Million Music Library
