There were over 1000 people at this grand opening, including some high profile Microsoft execs like the COO Kevin Turner who came out to cut the ribbon.

They say the store looks more like an Apple Store (imitating again?) so that means I have to go to an Apple Store and see with my eyes how it really looks (luckily, there are several around Phoenix area). Maybe the look of the store is because MS worked with a former Apple store designer?

The people were enthusiast about the opening but let’s see how they’ll appreciate Microsoft’s products, especially the newcomer Windows 7 (soon I will buy a machine which runs that so I am eager as well).

Enjoy the video!
