<![CDATA[So this year the BUILD conference will be held in my former play area - San Francisco. I'll be there for a few days to bring you the sights and sounds from the conference. As usual, I tend to ask readers of the blog what they would like to know about from Microsoft this year. I usually get the chance to speak to a few Microsoft sources on and off the record so your questions would be appreciated. I know that the rumor is that Windows 9 will be addressed at this conference. Between me and you, I wouldn't hold my breath on that one. As far as I can tell, there will probably be some high level vision statements about the future of Windows and some rah rah welcome our new CEO BS. Other than that, I fully expect the company to talk about how customers are loving Windows 8.1. I will be looking for more information on the following:
- Ecosystem integration – Hows the integration of Phone, Tablets, PC’s, Laptops etc going
- Enterprise security updates
- Staffing changes, new announcements
- Developer tools and announcements
- Satya’s keynote – to see if he will be specific or more party line?
Sorry man, after all this shit, all I care about is Windows 9.
Nice blog refresh by the way.
I also want to know more about Windows 9. Seems to make the most sense that we’re all trying to get past this mess.
.NET 5 and C# 6 hopefully.
I would like to know whether Mary or Wzor is right. Or both right. Or both wrong.
Right about what specifically?
About win9 dates.
Maybe we will hear about the next Surface Pro 3. No chance ?
Well, Windows 9 will be a purchase rather than a free update ala Win8 to Win8.1, right? Also, some news about “Gemini” would be nice.
8″ Surface 64bit with baytrail T and of course a wacom digitizer.
