Watch the Live Stream Windows 7 Launch Event

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 12 comments

Rejoice! A new Windows is upon us!

It's the biggest Microsoft launch in years and it's finally here. Microsoft's big CEO Steve Ballmer is currently at the launch in New York City. Tune in to the live stream of Microsoft's event to get the feeling as if you were there in person.

You can find the link to Microsoft's live stream right here. You will need the Microsoft Silverlight Plugin to be able to view the video.

Also, be sure to take part in our QOTD to tell us whether or not you'll be running Windows 7 today.

    I have x-fi and it works just fine...

    Can't silverlight just die already? Seriously now.

    I've avoided the SilverLight hoopla this long...and I shall continue to avoid it. Which is too bad, as the event would have been slightly interesting to watch, with Ballmer being the oddity that he is.

    what's up with the STEAM thing?...

    Oh, wait, they took Marcus out of his element! (coughcough)....

    But really, I don't need to watch that thing online... I like/use Windows but I'm not such a big fanboy as to WATCH it's launch. I don't think my life will depend on it ... I just wish it smooth sailing..

    And, BTW, I also thought for a moment that Steam is having a deal on it's client...

    I too wanted this to be about Valve's Steam service, and not the release of an OS about which pretty much everything is already known.

    dreamphantom_1977I had the beta, but my x-fi wouldn't work properly in windows 7, so I switched back to xp. As soon as the problem is solved I'll switch back. I really liked windows 7. Just refuse to trade for my x-fi.


    The vista drivers should work fine with windows 7, they've been out for ages now.

    Well, that was, annoying, to watch (a bit too fake and gushy for my liking) but it had some lovely hardware and features. It's nice to see MS pushing other companies products, whats really sad is said companies dont do enough of it themselves. Still wish they'd had the HP Firebird there.

    I think I'm beginning to see what MS has in mind for its retail stores... good on them.
