Windows 7 launch party will be in New York

I’m back. Looks like some stuff happened while I was gone — dustup over pasting a black person into a homogenous Microsoft ad in Poland (Microsoft has apologized for this incident) and a ruling on a patent infringement case over Word which resulted in a $290 million fine and an injunction on selling Word (Microsoft is appealing and has requested a stay).

Today we found out Windows 7, the next version of Microsoft’s flagship product, will launch in New York on Oct. 22.

Microsoft spokesman Lou Gellos just confirmed by phone. It was reported this morning by ZDNet’s All About Microsoft.
