This is kind of a mix feeling for me. Have been using Cygwin for the past few years just to get something done faster than I can do it with Windows apps/tools. Part of me being happy because Microsoft is committed doing it. The sad me would be thinking the future of Cygwin. Would the project simply be dead?
Where is the exit interview for Laura :( ?
Hmm... Mine were Ms. Word and PowerPoint 2003, Skydrive and PDF-XChange Viewer. I am still using all of them now even after graduating last year.
If I have to pick the most I relied on, I guess it would be Skydrive. I had a hard time to rely on flash disk, sometimes I would loss it on the lab and its size only 1GB. Skydrive also have integrated Office Web App, even though with limited functionality. So, thumb up for Skydrive .

Just wondering, will there be a Ping Live Show on Build Conference ?

It reminds me back when I was in Foundation, it said Computer Science, but we learnt how to use Microsoft Word 2003.
IMO, selling OS without apps is just like selling house in deserted island or jungle.

Happy that 25th October is the last day of my final exam which means I can stay up the whole night to watch Build conference.
As for Zune, I had tried to have 14 days trial for several times but no luck at all. Putting my mastercard details into it and got rejected because I'm in Australia but my hotmail account is US based. I do not want to create new account just only to try it. That's also applied to when I want to buy a game, so all my games in WP are free version . Why can't MS implement it in such a simple way?
I tried the Bing Blind testing few weeks ago and I can tell that it was not totally blind. I sort of knew which one was Bing or Google by looking at their looks. I noticed as well that Bing results on first and second test was on the right hand side. People tend to look at the top right so I don't know if it was a trick or just a mere coincidence.
Well, for technical queries, Google still is on top of Bing. Even though I pretty aware of that, I still use Bing most of the time. If I really cannot get what I really want then I will use Google.
Hey Paul, since you cannot throw nine guy into camera, why don't you try to stick the nine guy on top of your headset ?
Laura, why don't you put nine guy on the tv just like last week?

Usually when Paul go to Shanghai or any other places and get replaced by Larry, I will say hurray. But now, I really feel so sad. Since I knew Channel9, Tina was the first to leave, then Paul.
Laura, you should make Tina and Paul as your guests. Tina on episode 167 (I remember Tina asked you to make her appeared again in the past episode) and Paul on 200.
