Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

‘I’m Jim Allchin’

The news is out. Windows Vista has released to manufacturing and will be available to consumers on Jan. 30.

Jim Allchin, co-president of the division building Vista, is the Microsoft mouth for today’s news, as he rightfully should be. This is his baby and also his swan song. When Vista’s out the door, Allchin is too.

Today, you can get as much Allchin as you want. Here’s our coverage. You can check out the official Microsoft word here. The company will probably post a transcript of Allchin’s press conference later this afternoon. Veteran tech journalist Mary Jo Foley has had one of the only interviews with Allchin recently.

And for the really hard core, check out this chat between a Microsoftie and a smiling Allchin posted on Microsoft’s internal Channel 9 video site.
