  • The problem with combined ​address/sea​rch bars

    You also lose all your previous search text strings.  This is a show stopper for me.  It's so frustrating to have to retype in some long search text after you just did it and got back poor results and need to modify it.  I hate combined search/address bars.

  • Microsoft .NET vs Java (funny video)

    OMG, LMFAO at 2:42! Big Smile  My dream girl, lol. Wink

  • IE9 Beta

    The combined address and search bar (OneBar?) doesn't work half the time.  Try a long search, or something with "blah .net" or something.  You also cannot retain your previous search terms.  They get "lost" in embedded query strings, within the search URL.  Terrible idea and very frustrating.

  • Give my sister money

    Dude, you're asking us to vote and give personal info out, but you can't be bothered to create a Facebook account to do it yourself?  Whatever.

  • Microsoft Prototype Keyboard

    I really like the VS concepts. 

  • If you had the chance, what would you like to see on the Microsoft Campus?

    You should make a Photosynth of the entire campus, and link videos for all the locations into the synth.  Smiley

     

    Well, all the ideas you proposed sound good to me.  I'd also like to see me on the Microsoft Campus, that'd be the best.  Wink

    I just wanted to jump in here and let you all know what's happening with our Kinect content.  I have been working with the Xbox team with getting Developer interviews and deep dives onto channel 9 for the past couple of months.  I am working diligently to make this happen.  I hope to have some great interviews with some great developers behind Kinect for you very soon. 

    Sounds good!  Can't wait.  Smiley

  • P vs NP

    I can't pretend to have the knowledge required to understand the paper, but from the looks of it, the reactions to it, and the guy's credentials and past work, it sounds like it's a very serious attempt and I hope it pans out.

     

    The proof, if verified, will also probably open a lot of doors into new areas, and says something important about human creativity.  That is, you can't simulate it with a classical computer.  At least, that's how I understand it.  The implication is then that the brain is a form of quantum computer, which has been proposed for a long time now, but it certainly couldn't be simulated by a classical computer if my understanding is correct.

  • IronRuby dead

    re1: None of this addresses the lack of dynamic languages on the CLR if Microsoft drops the "Iron" languages.

     

    re2: PowerShell is certainly dynamic (goes beyond type inference and includes dynamic types), though I'll agree that it doesn't use the DLR.

     

    re5: I dispute that the bulk of Ruby users are in the Mac/Linux crowd, and regardless there's numerous reasons why such devs might want to take a dependency on .NET. I won't argue that those reasons aren't corner case reasons, but you've turned this discussion on it's head in the first place. My point was to dispute the claim you made that by using IronRuby you had to target Windows.

     

    re6: That's not entirely true. OpenSource or not, if Microsoft abandons "Iron" then it's very likely that developers will be reluctant to use them. This is more political than technical, and is unfortunate, and it has little to do with how many people currently use the languages.

    Maybe they are planning on using SPUR to replace the DLR.

    Would you like to see some technical deep dives into Kinect here on C9? Is this something we should pursue?

    C

    Definitely!
