Vista Named ‘Best of CES’ 2007

Windows Vista operating system has been selected by the editors at CNET as a winner of the “Best of CES 2007” award in the computers and hardware category at the 2007 International Consumer
Electronics Show (CES). Windows Vista, scheduled to be broadly available on
Jan. 30, 2007, was honored for enhancements and innovations that provide
users with an experience that is easier, safer, more entertaining and
better connected, at home or on the go.

“It is a great honor to have Windows Vista declared one of the best
products at this year’s CES,” said Mike Sievert, corporate vice president
for Windows(R) Client Marketing at Microsoft Corp. “We are in outstanding
company here at the show, and this award is an indication of what customers
can expect when they are able to experience Windows Vista for themselves
later this month.”

The development of Windows Vista is the result of an unprecedented
collaboration between Microsoft and its customers and partners. The product
was designed with the help of millions of testers worldwide, including 50
families from seven countries taking part in the Life with Windows Vista
program. The feedback gathered from this testing was invaluable to the
product development, and Windows Vista is better because of it.

In preparation for the Windows Vista launch, thousands of PC manufacturers and
system builders across the globe are preparing to deliver new PCs designed
to run the new operating system. By Jan. 30, more than 1.5 million devices
will have the Works with Windows Vista logo and more than 2,000 products
will be Certified for Windows Vista, helping make Internet and networking
connections, home entertainment and business tasks faster, easier and more
secure. Many of those products are on display at CES, including two Windows
Vista-based PCs — the HP TouchSmart PC IQ770 and the ASUS W5Fe
SideShow(TM) Notebook — that were the other two finalists for the Best of
CES award in the computers and hardware category.

The Best of CES awards, which are produced and judged by CNET,
recognize the best products at 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show
in 10 categories, plus a Best of Show.
