New York Launch for XP on Track

Microsoft Corp. will still launch Windows XP in New York City Oct. 25 despite the terrorist attacks that brought down the twin towers of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, the company announced this week.

"Mayor [Rudolph] Giuliani has said that he wants New York open for business, and we're responding to that call," Microsoft chairman and chief software architect Bill Gates said in a statement. "There is simply no place like New York, and there are no people like New Yorkers."

In an accompanying statement, the mayor said, "Microsoft's launch of Windows XP in our city is an affirmation of the business community's continuing commitment to New York City remaining the business capital of the world."
