iFreeze, uFreeze, We All Freeze for Vista

Microsoft’s brilliant marketing installation, an 1800sqft ice house in Dundas Square, tells you precisely what will happen when you install Vista: your computer will freeze. Perhaps the Redmond, Washington-based software company believed Canadians, who all live in igloos, would feel right at home in their icy digs. We kid, but when three University of Toronto students saw the house that Gates built, they immediately thought “house party”.
SSRI and N3554 of Überave, known for their parties in unusual places like parking garages, and Rothko Institute, known for their surprisingly loud portable soundsystem, invite you to join them for a seemingly impromptu “apples and penguins” themed dance party in the chateau d’glace. Expect free Ubuntu distros, plenty of Mac fanboys and maybe even some fruit.
The fun starts at 6 PM this evening and continues until the security gets a clue!
