  • Has there been a negative video about MS on C9?

    Well, if you don't know enough about it, how can you tell it was a flop?

    And since when you have been able to run different OSs on mobile phones? (except for acts of extreme hacking, that count for what amounts to statistical noise)

    If a phone runs android, does that mean it is open to pretty much any OS being loaded on it? That is one of my assumptions.  Why discontinue windows mobile as a competitor to android?

    Regarding my lack of knowledge about windows mobile, I get all my tech info from C9 and MSDN <g>. I have a windows mobile phone. Can it connect to a wireless router as an IP device on a LAN? That would be neat if I could network to my phone from my PC, send code to it that I wrote using visual studio, exchange data between the devices.

    And we used to get those when Scoble was here... not so much anymore... The message has been sanitized these days I think



    I liked that guy who would not shake hands because of some germ thing.  He was technical and was willing to ask probing questions.

    @SteveRichter: how was Windows Mobile a flop? It certainly wasn't a flop commercially.

    I don't know enough about it. As I understand, windows mobile is being withdrawn?  Can we say the average handheld phone sold today has more computing power than the first PC?  Yet you cannot run a Microsoft OS on many of these phones?  If a phone runs android, could I, should I be able to load windows mobile?  

  • viewership numbers

    I would like to see viewership numbers displayed for each video on channel 9.  Also, how much people stay tuned in vs exit early.  Some of the stuff I am inclined not to watch ( ping ) or once I stop understanding the presentation ( monads, F# ) I stop watching. If I can see that others stayed with it, I might give a video a 2nd try.

    Channel9 is about technology (mostly Microsoft's), so how can any video be negative?

    And what's more, what is the point?


    What about a video explaining why windows mobile was a flop? And what that portends for WP7?


  • Silverlight / HTML5 (and WPF)

    the problem I have with WPF, silverlight and likely WP7 is that I can't program the stuff without a total focus of my time.  As long as Anders does not allow them in as first class citizens of C# ( guessing ), dependency properties are not intutitive to use.

  • Personal feedback on Office 2010

    I like Word the more I use it. The table of contents works pretty good.  Who is the genius in the office division who thought up the idea of automatically linking heading 1, 2 and 3 with the TOC?  A great feature.  With LiveSync and SkyDrive I use Word now instead of google documents. But google docs does a better job of managing your collection of documents. Esp being able to search all of the documents for something.

    Access is the product I just cannot get the hang of. Learning WPF was easier. Without the people on Microsoft Answers I would be totally lost. I keep thinking it would be a good addition to my freelance work to be able to write an Access app in a day or so. I will keep dreaming.  I never finished Moby Dick so I can't use that analogy here, but learning Access is fast becoming a matter of personal professional pride for me.



  • Azure One Month Pass - No Credit Card Required

    Is there an open source cloud OS being developed?  I can't see locking myself into both a hosting site and a proprietary OS. How do you pick up your application and run it elsewhere?

    What features of Sharepoint do your clients need? Sharepoint Foundation 2010 is a free download for Windows Server 2008.




    thanks for the link. Looks like sharepoint foundation does not support access 2010:


  • small business server

    I hope there is an upcoming video on small business server.  There is so much I don't know.  After seeing the access and sharepoint videos I was interested in learning how to use  that software. But then I saw the standalone price of sharepoint and kind of said forget about it. The business clients I want to target can't afford that. Then it is like, oh, small business server, that includes sharepoint and it is affordable. But SBS uses an older version of sharepoint?  The latest news I have is from the SBS team blog, they say aurora is the new SBS and it was released in mid July for some sort of beta tryout. But a few minutes of link clicking did not get me to a download. 

    Will sharepoint 2010 be a part of the next SBS?
