This looks more like a Hello Kitty game then it does Microsoft Vista. As a special promotion for the Japanese, an upgrade version of Windows Vista Home Premium is bundled with a year’s subscription of Windows Live OneCare and a copy of a Vista tips and tricks book, as well as a pink box with flowers all over it.
The pink flowers are called sakura (cherry blossoms) and this is being released for the Sakura or “Cherry Blossom” season, which is a HUGE event in Japan.
There will only be 2,500 of these special copies available so if you have any friends in Japan you had better make a call now. I wonder if there will be any knock offs of eBay for the hardcore Microsoft collectors to buy. That is if there is such a collector out there……
