    @Bas:

    I dunno.. I suppose i'm an optimist but looking at the sessions there seem to be quite a few on game development Smiley the point update on directx that even has its own session is also puzzeling, they usually don't talk much about DirectX.. i'm guessing the new version is what xbox uses.

    There are only two sessions explicitly tagged as xbox (still that's two more than ever before) but I think Microsoft will push for a single "windows" for phone, xbox and pc, so there might be something Smiley

    as for the length of the conference, its been three days for a long time, so i'm not sure that's any indication of content and there might still be sessions that they haven't added, again I suppose i'm an optimist Smiley

    we'll see soon

    (The existing Win32, line-of-business/commercial developer community and the startup community) "We need a good conversation with that community."

    "We haven't done a good job telling the .Net developers we haven't forgotten them, We need to tell them that."

    lets see Smiley

    @felix9:  So long as it's more than, "Hey .NET developers, we haven't forgotten you.  Here's an update on Roslyn... (2 minutes)... Moving on...".

    I think Microsoft post sinofsky [and with the xbox one pr disaster] is starting to realize that it has to listen more do its customers and developers.. 8.1 is a really good example of that. so it git support for tfs

    hopefully they manage to sneak some exciting stuff past the awful PR offices and put some developers on stage showing things we can actually use

    we'll see in 15 Tongue Out but im genuinely excited about this one

    @aL3891:  I hope you're right.  But I feel like this is the same Microsoft that responds too late to feedback.

    I'm excited, too... but if this bombs, I will be very disappointed.

    It's nice to finally not have these keynotes be at 1am. The advantage of not living in Japan anymore. Wink

    Just a note for any niners in the audience. It's probably not a good idea to go knuckle-deep up your nose when there's a camera panning around. Tongue Out

    Well, according to Soma, that 'What's New in .NET Development' session is all about .NET 4.5.1 and VS2013 IDE features.

    @felix9: I'm not sure what "oh no" means but skimming the blog I have to say there are a few good gems in VS 2013 that make it a significant update (watch return values, 64-bit edit & continue, handling in-flight async transactions). Much of it is around Windows Store Apps which IMO keeps hammering nails in the desktop coffin but all-in-all I think VS 2013 looks pretty good.

    Separate DPI for external monitors? Now that is awesome and something that has been needed for a long time. Smiley

    It started working again after a bit. Just caught the tail end of the Project Spark, which looked kind of cool.

    So, when's the Windows 8.1 preview available to the public? Tongue Out
