Microsoft revealed today its new packaging for Windows Vista and Office 2007, which are basically colorful, rounded plastic containers. Here’s what a Microsoft rep has to say:

Designed to be user-friendly, the new packaging is a small, hard, plastic container that’s designed to protect the software inside for life-long use. It provides a convenient and attractive place for you to permanently store both discs and documentation. The new design will provide the strength, dimensional stability and impact resistance required when packaging software today. Our plan is to extend this packaging style to other Microsoft products after the launch of Windows Vista and 2007 Office system
