Justin Lassen at the historic launch of the first Microsoft Store 2009!

The Microsoft Store 2009 Part 2 049

Proud audio geek and composer, Justin Lassen went to the big launch of Windows 7 October 22nd, 2009, at the historic foundation of the worlds first-ever Microsoft Store in Scottsdale, Arizona. A lot of people showed up to this event, including COO, Kevin Turner of Microsoft. Justin got to meet and do pictures with Mr. Turner and share his reactions and impressions with several MS executives and employees. There were generous gift bags at the launch, a lot of fun discussion, the new MS surface table technology with sweet games, a lot of laptops from every major company running Windows 7 systems, and lots of other great stuff to celebrate. Singer/Actor Ashley Tisdale was also at this launch to do a concert and a signing, meet+greet afterwards.

I can still remember Windows 3.1 from back in the early 90’s, which was my first major introduction to Windows, and wow, to see it come this far [7], and be at such a cool historic moment; to have the privilege to meet such inspired people, is so cool! Really makes up for so many things, namely Vista. After playing with the new OS, I can’t wait to upgrade! I’m definitely a PC.” says Lassen.
