MICROSOFT TO LAUNCH WINDOWS XP IN NEW YORK CITY.
"Microsoft's launch of Windows XP in our City is an affirmation of the business community's continuing commitment to New York City remaining the Business Capital of the World," said Rudolph W. Giuliani, mayor of New York. "We welcome Microsoft to our city. It is another example of the fact that New York City is open for business."
"Mayor Giuliani has said that he wants New York open for business, and we're responding to that call. There is simply no place like New York, and there are no people like New Yorkers," said Bill Gates, chairman and chief software architect at Microsoft. "We are extremely excited about moving forward with our plans to launch Windows XP in New York on Oct. 25. While the city is forever changed, we want this event to help remind the world that New York still represents strength and determination."
