@Shelia Ray: In immediate revenue that is probably true, but Nvidia have now locked up contracts with both Amazon (AWS) and MS. I'm guessing immediate revenue isn't the prime factor in calculating its worth to the company.
@Jacobjs01: So the question is whether the syscalls that Docker needs (for chroot and namespaces, among other things) were implemented or not. The answer is to that is likely "no". Docker requires fairly sophisticated (and Linux-specific) functionality for process and resource management, and process isolation. While it is probably possible to replicate all this on Windows, it would be a lot of work, and since the goal of this Windows feature seems to be running Linux userspace programs, it seems unlikely they did all the work (and kept it secret).
@stahtufiang: The PowerShell ISE Preview is still in active development but there hasn't been much progress in the last few months because our efforts have been focused on releasing the new open source PowerShell.
@Nitin: I've just noticed some further changes to the proposed features of C# 6.0 which I don't think have been announced previously, Firstly, interpolated strings are going to be convertible to IFormattable which will enable them to be formatted later for a specific locale.
@AlinCiocan:I have a different rule: "Bad doctors bury their mistakes; Bad architects cover them with ivy; Bad application designers write user manuals; Bad programmers write comments." So I disagree: I think that the mark of a great programmer is that I can read their code and know what's going on.
@PUGR:I see the reason to do this in a way to cut cost.. However, when you have companies with a large Microsoft footprint or consulting firms with large Microsoft practices, sending 20-30 people to a conference on a single date range is extreme hit to an organization. Companies will still send people to the conference but in fewer numbers to save cost themselves. Not much choice in the matter or find other 3rd party Microsoft conferences to fill in the gaps.. I see that area growing..
