The Discussion

    I don't think of MIX as just a Web conference - I think of it as a dev and user experience confrence, but if you're wondering why people think it's a Web conference, try turning around: you're standing in front of the slogan 'the next Web now'!

    So, Charlie, as someone who was on both the Home Server Team (I'm pretty sure you were on the team while I was interning at Microsoft), and the Windows Phone Team. Will I be able to sync the Photos / Videos / etc Wirelessly with my Home Server?


    I know the answer is probably no right now, but I thought it was an interesting thought-experiment.

    I like the example with the daughter. Easy to relate to. Looking much forward to MIX. Would be nice to be able to go. Sweden is WAY too cold now anyway.

    I am interested in how compatable .net programs are going to be with WP 7.

    @4thregionref:not compatibile. You have to redevelop them.
    WP 7 is taking controll by not allowing you to do what normal applications do. Think of Adobe Flash: That's all that WP7 apps can do. They can't break your computer, but also can't really do much else either. Safe.
