Microsoft Server 2008 Launch

Got to go to the official launch of Windows Server 2008 today. Pretty cool... they actually gave everyone in attendance a free FULL copy of the OS... not a trial.

The folks at Microsoft also informed us that they're sending us all a full fledged copy of Windows Vista Ultimate, for our own personal use... I get the impression that they're trying to encourage more IT folks to get on board with the new OS, since we're the ones that make all the recommendations to the higher ups that authorize the upgrade budgets.

Anyway, ran into some guy today... apparently, he's the Chief Operating Officer for some obscure software company based out of Redmond, Washington, and says he works with a couple guys named Steve and Bill...

    That's cool, I am going to Microsoft conference for the new sql and VIsual Studio, should be interesting indeed. (The free breakfast is what sold me!)

    I don't care what people say, Microsoft does alot for the community, and I must say they did a super job with the new XNA development, really geared towards the indie developers ( I prefer games programming to business applications programming incase you couldn't tell)

    Cheers

    Lame. They can't sell their POS operating system so they're giving it away to anyone who'll take it (which turns out to me a predictably small number). They can read the writing on the wall and it scares the hell out of them.
