Vista, Office on Nov. 30th

Microsoft has announced that Windows Vista will first be available to Canadian businesses, starting on November 23rd, says IDG. Microsoft will host the first of its New Day for Business events in Edmonton, Alberta, where Canadian availability of the OS will be formally launched. The company will also begin distributing Exchange Server 2007 and the Office 2007 suite at the same time. The American launch of Vista, meanwhile, will happen a week later on November 30th. CEO Steve Ballmer will be present for events at the NASDAQ Stock Market in Manhattan as well the Marriott Marquis in Times Square.

The New York launch will not be the end of Microsoft's publicity efforts. Further Canadian presentations will take place in Toronto on December 5th, Montreal on December 7th, and Ottawa on December 12th. Miscellaneous demonstrations will continue into January, by which time Vista should be put into public release.
