Spiros Giokaris was chosen from a draw of names by retailing supremo Gerry Harvey to be first customer to purchase the new operating system at a Harvey Norman store in Sydney’s south at midnight this morning.

Mr Giokaris, who works in sports management, was ecstatic to hand over his credit card to Harvey.

“I can’t wait to go home to try it out — I’m excited,” he told ninemsn.
