In this episode of the Edge Show,  Rick sits down with Ned Pyle - Senior PM on the File Server team to talk about changes to DFS in Windows Server 2012 R2 and how we've changed the staging and cloning capabilities. You might remember Ned from the "Ask DS" blog where he was a main contributor for the Directory Services team while working as a top level support engineer.

Simon and Rick cover off some interesting bits from the interwebs, including:

      Good show-getting ned was a bit of a scoop, and who hasn't had some issues with dfs in the past - refreshing to know it wasn't just me. And he didn't mention cloud either, thank f%%k, makes a change .

      Anyway - where would a 40something like myself get such a tshirt…that's what we want to know.

      Very good interview with Ned Pyle, it is always great to hear senior PM explain in (as much) detail (as possible) how the thinking about the product/technology have developed over the versions/years and what change this translated into when it comes to the final product!

      Keep up the good reporting work guys!

      I grabbed that shirt off Redbubble.com, Dave - it is called "Final Run". There is an alternative version over at super7store.com called "Star Wars Arcade"; they have a bunch of good stuff, I first found them when attending SD Comic-Con a few years ago. As Mark Twain famously said, "You can never have enough 1980's vector graphic arcade game t-shirts." Although I might be misquoting him. 

      Thanks for the kind words, all. :)

      Hey guy. You need to speak about Office 2013/Exchange 2013 SP1, in the news atleast.

      @SimonT:At the time we recorded the news segment, there was no official news about SP1 that was public or hadn't already been published.
