The Windows Vista Team Blog just announced what the packaging will look like for retail copies of Windows Vista and Office 2007. I like all of the rounded corners because it gives it a unique look that goes beyond the classic box. Somehow The Vista Team Blog came up with a very unique way of making it sound like the packaging alone is worth hundreds of dollars. Shall we see how many words you can use describe a package:
Designed to be user-friendly, the new packaging is a small, hard, plastic container thatâ€™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.
I am in no way making fun of them for the description…I just have no clue how Nick came up with so many different adjectives to describe the packaging! Look back at the keywords that I highlighted and maybe you’ll agree that it sounds like a commercial for a new car. :D
Enormous pictures of the packaging can be found at the official blog post.
As Paul Thurrott points out here are the rest of the Vista packages. You can tell that Ultimate is definitely geared towards gamers.
