The new Vista boxes…Mac like?


Call me a geek (oh I did that myself so no need) but I luuurve these new product boxes for the Windows Vista editions. Black is my choice of course for the full on experience.

 


It does lead me to the question of how much longer we'll see products ship in real boxes like these though. With the widespread use of bandwidth more and more products are going to arrive as binary bits more frequently.

These boxes remind me of some of the Office for Mac product boxes we have shipped in the past so I guess you could say we're copying the Mac again..but this time our version of things πŸ™‚

    With what they’re charging they should package the software in platinum boxes.
