Windows Vista released today to a mixed reaction (snickers AND yawns) from the tech community and the public alike.

A while back, I posted the artwork for the packaging, but I don’t think I included the one for the Ultimate Edition – the proverbial Stealth Bomber of the Windows arsenal.

The DVD artwork itself isn’t so impressive, but I think it is kinda interested (albeit, unnecessary) how the box opens to expose its captive treasures. Kinda like some bizarre oyster-pearl relationship…

Not much else to say about it, except for the fact that this artwork reminds me of those Laser photo backdrops used in school portraits in the late 80s and early 90s. Dude, those were wicked rad!

Cool background.
