      You do realise something is horribly broken with this (+other?) videos on the main page? I click them and IE just sits there displaying Loading... but dosnt do anything. The only way I could view this video was to go to Media->Videos.

      Like crazy new Office UI

      Super excited about the X-box.

      I sincerely hope that they are indeed super crazy excited about their stuff!  If they wouldn't, what's the point of spending so much time and resources on it?

      Soma seems like a great VP.  Since I use SQL Server 2000 and VS.NET 2003, I watched with interest on both of those.  The VS.NET 2005 looks quite interesting, but from as a developer in enterprise, there are some significant changes between the two IDE versions and the shortfalls in .NET 1.1 have been larger supplemented by our libraries.  So, it seems to be a longer process for us, I'd think.

      However, SQL Server 2005 will definitely look quite interesting and I've really grown to appreciate SQL Server 2000 in terms of ease and use and power...despite the fact it's around 5 years old!
