It shows that Craig Mundie has been working with Bill Gates for a long time. Both are equally quite boring to listen as they speak about technology. Always very very broad and vague in their statements and very very sparse on original insights and ideas. Hopefully it's just because they keep these things within the realms of Microsoft.

Constrast this guy with Anders Hejlsberg or Jim Gray. Those guys are amazing to listen to. They (and others) are the real thought leaders within Microsoft. I only hope more of the top brass would step down and let the true innovators stear the ship.

Cheers,
