While Microsoft is gearing up to open retail stores in the U.S., the company's take on a European presence seems to be a little different.

According to various sources on the web, Microsoft will be opening up a temporary Windows Café just in time for the launch of Windows 7 on October 22. The café will be located in Paris at 47 Boulevard Sebastopol, and will only be open for a couple of weeks following the launch of the new operating system.

In the location, Microsoft products will be on display and for demonstration, but apparently they will not be offered for sale. Unlike the retail stores, the Windows Café will not be a place for shoppers to buy Microsoft products, as the shop will only sell food and drinks.

  • jhansonxiIt would be nice to visit but I'm afraid of catching a virus.


    Don't worry, if you bring a mac, you're impervious to viruses.

  • This is actually interesting to me, because France is part of EU, and EU and Microsoft didn't always go well together
