  • Windows 10 Preview (Download Link - 1st Oct )

    Windows Server Technical Preview will be availabe for download here tomorrow

  • Channel 9 officially dead?

    Ok, I guess thats because C9 is generally for developer content and the Windows 10 preview is for Enterprise, no dev related announcements, those kind of news are only for  Ping! show, which unfortunately at a bad timing to report this.

  • Channel 9 officially dead?

    guess those content should fits Channel 10 more ?  (6)

  • Windows TH?

    Placeholder for Windows One?

    Since this OS will feature a female AI voice assistant, so it will be named after Element Software OS1 ? :P

  • Windows TH?

    that's obviously a placeholder since the codename is Threshold. :)

  • new info around Midori team

    well, just noticed Joe Duffy updated his About page to explain what Systems Programming Group does

    I am director of engineering for Microsoft's Systems Programming Group.

    This group is advancing the state of safe, productive, and performant systems programming, and developing core compiler technologies, like the Visual C++ compiler, new efforts like .NET Native, and a few other things that I can't wait to blog about someday soon.

    OK, so .NET Native is under this group, as expected, but ...... Visual C++ Compiler ? really ?

  • Happy Birthday Dr Herbie!

    oh happy birthday doctor, any cake ? :P

  • Microsoft laying off workers, drats...

    The Humans Are Dead http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ashleyf/archive/2014/09/21/the-humans-are-dead.aspx

    Sadly, Microsoft has decided to kill the MSR Robotics team... My last day is today.
    All that remains is a bunch of robots...
