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.
