Sure they could... if they licensed the technology from you.
Great video! And, yes, shorter videos are excellent!
I would love to see the developer who created the XmlDataSource answer Scott's question about namespaces. Actually, I would love to hear that developer tell Scott that they intend to fix this oversight in the .NET 3.5 version of the XmlDataSource.
Then I can retire my XSL template that strips namespaces off XML documents and forget that bloody hack (my XSLT, not your code -- I like the XmlDataSource) ever existed...
Sorry, UAC stinks. Yes, running as Admin and making yourself vulnerable to all sorts of nastiness stinks worse, but that doesn't make the stench of UAC any better.
A big part of what makes UAC suck is the modal dialog box. People filter out modal dialogs eventually and just click through them regardless of the messages. The more they have to click through, the more they will.
UAC is the boy who cried wolf.
Make Visual Studio 2005 work right on Vista.
Make RTM-quality extensions for WCF and WPF that work on Visual Studio 2005.
Otherwise, expect a significant chunk of the Microsoft developer community to look at you sheepishly because they don't have budget to drop thousands of dollars on another Visual Studio edition less than two years after they did so for Visual Studio 2005.

Is it true that Mac OS will be a first class citizen as far as the .NET Framework is concerned?
Jan 19, 2007 at 5:28PMIt is enlightening to learn functional programming just for the different perspective on coding. However, I doubt that it will be very useful in real world application development.
I would have been more interested in a discussion about how Microsoft language developers intend to improve support for concurrency and transactional software in the next versions of their respective languages. Workflow Foundation looks like it has potential, but it would be great if there were better support for it in the languages and good examples of how it would actually be useful in real world application development scenarios.
Good discussion to watch nonetheless. One of the first in a long time I actually watched from beginning to end.
