Windows Vista Retail Packshots

Microsoft today revealed the retail packaging for Windows Vista and Office 2007, the eagerly awaited new products to be made widely available in early 2007. The boxes boast a completely revised and redesigned packaging. Writing on the Windows Vista Team Blog, Nick White said:

“Designed to be user-friendly, the new packaging is a small, hard, plastic container that’s designed to protect the software inside for life-long use. It provides a convenient and attractive place for you to permanently store both discs and documentation.

The new design will provide the strength, dimensional stability and impact resistance required when packaging software today. Our plan is to extend this packaging style to other Microsoft products after the launch of Windows Vista and 2007 Office system.”

Here are the Packshots:

nice boxes..however redmond has made another error.

there is no ‘feature’ list that i’ve seen to distinguish without a doubt which of the FIVE (enterprise is missing from your pic) a consumer or business should purchase.

confusion in the software aisle, confusion online purchasing a dell/hp/lenovo…should i pay for the ‘upgrade’ if i don’t what am i missing?

poor marketing imho.
