But even if few attendees were there to appreciate it, the presenting companies had obviously spared no expense on their booths. Microsoft's set-up was the grandest, with a huge theater dedicated to displaying new wares, and a pavilion with rows and rows of computers (most of which were unoccupied) where attendees could try out Redmond's software. The EDS booth took honorable mention with its near life-sized racecar and Christmas tree of starting lights.
