I'm really looking forward to Shared Nothing Storage Spaces. With the addition of rebalancing it looks like the perfect solution.
I think one of the last questions was misunderstood. I believe the question was: Why would anyone deploy "traditional" storage spaces when Shared Nothing Storage Spaces will become available? (i.e. "What are the disadvantages of SNSS compared to traditional SS?")
Wow, thanks for discussing my question ("[09:53] Surface Type Cover is touchy")!
The weird thing is that we're all having this problem with different keyboards (Touch- and Type Cover). So far I haven't met a single person that hasn't had this problem. All updates, including optional, are installed. Anand Lal Shimpi even mentioned the problem in his recent review of the Surface Pro 3:
"There are also times when the keyboard and/or trackpad will stop responding. In some situations only certain aspects of the Type Cover won't work. For example right now I can't seem to get two finger scrolling or any other trackpad gestures to work. This is a problem I've seen on every single Surface since its release, although the problem itself seems to have gotten better over the years. Thankfully unlike previous implementations, detaching/reattaching the cover is usually enough to fix things."
Great session (presentation & content). Would love to hear more about .Net native from him. Specifically if life's easier for the optimizer when dealing with IL. Can more/other optimization be performed? I'm asking because pointers (in C/C++) make many optimizations quite difficult.
