    Time of night seems off unless it is related to the announcement.

    Microsoft has bought Avid Technologies.

    Announce acquisition of a company--think not.

    Must be about a product or application developed in a skunkworks.

    No idea what it would be.

    OK They are going to release Visual Studio 2007 now instead of in January as Visual Studio 2008.  Tongue Out

    Developers, developers, developers,--Steve Ballmer moves up and becomes Chairman--Bill Gates retires. Do not think so.

    Must be the release of Business Dynamics--is that cool. Never.

    Microsoft will be releasing a SDK for both games and robotics using the .NET Framework for free!

    Sounds about right, cool and it is about developers--but why 9 tonight.

    Wasting cycles.

    Cool

    Why 9 tonight?  Something for hobbyist developers or students, maybe?  Perhaps Expression Express edition, to get hobbyists on Silverlight and WPF?

    </pure speculation>

    Good idea!

  • DarthVista

    I would hope tonight's announcement is a declaration of the formation of a new type of evangelism/developer group...aka the "Vista Knights". As I have said previously, we must take our enthusiasm to a new level; we must deal with the Crusader Linux zealots who seek to topple our way of life and our ideology by arming ourselves with knowledge, secure software, and stunning tools.

    I think it might be something to do with some microsoft competitor. Why will microsoft announce something now when MIX is just too close??

    If it has little or nothing to do with web development?

    I don't think that's it...  reread Scoble's post.  He hasn't posted anything else, plus it's not 9pm PDT yet.

    Although I was looking forward to Longhorn Server Beta 3.  Typical that it comes out during finals week Smiley
