Hmmm, forgot about "Live Drive". That's a distinct possibility. If they did announce it, a million HotMail users would cry out in unison "WHY IS MY ACCOUNT STILL AT 250MB?!".

Don't forget they have had Jim Hugunin...Haven't really saw much about what the two are working on ...
IronPython 1.1 came out a few days ago. I don't know if he's still the primary on that though. He probably still owns it. I think they have a dynamic language TEAM in the CLR team now.
