My window to the world

Could you be the first to buy Windows Vista from a retail store?

Thanks again to New Zealand's privileged position in the world (close to the dateline), and due to our timezone, someone here will be the first consumer to purchase a copy of Windows Vista from a retail store.
I found out about this on Nigel Parker's blog, but in summary the Dick Smith Electronics PowerHouse, 5 Ronwood Avenue, Manukau City store will open at midnight, Tuesday 30th January, but you can probably join the queue before then, to chat with other early adopters (and grab a hot chocolate if the evening is cold?).

Apparently this is not the first time this kind of thing has happened, and it was the same when Windows 95 was launched.
