It was at the 2003 PDC in Los Angeles that Microsoft gave developers a peek at some of the early builds of the version of Windows code-named “Longhorn”. This release represented a lot of big advancements for the operating system, and the developer audience was anxious to learn whatever they could. In this episode of PDC Classics, join Don Box and Chris Anderson as they fondly look back at this PDC which also gave them the first time to present together on stage. We’ll also see clip from the keynote where the “Red versus Blue” team shows us how important it is to attend the PDC, and Hillel Cooperman provides a brief demo of “Longhorn”.

If you’d like some more details of some of the other developer oriented technologies and products which were unveiled at PDC’03, you can check out this press release from October 27th, 2003:
