It also appears that Microsoft is now forcing IE 8 as a "critical update."
During the install, it sets itself as the default browser without asking.
Then it does everything it can to get you to default to Windows Live Search, Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Maps, Windows Live Chair Throwing, etc. etc. etc.

Ahh, this is more of your famous "objectivity on the subject of Microsoft"! My install didn't set itself as the default.

The author of IG's article has amended the article a little bit.

He admits he's at fault; he missed something about 'express setup'.

seems as if everyone settles on the M$ Office ODF support is  just another sort of FUD...

Yeah, this was a real sleazeball move on their part. They've included a deliberately broken implementation of ODF into MS Office.

Report: Day one -  arrived on site at 1100 PDT.  People working the booths are either on happy drugs, or genuinly helpfull.. not sure which yet.  I haven't tryed the water/cool-aid....

 Not a lot of drones yet.  only a few people with MS attire. I've avoided looking at the flashing lites, but the Starbucks was too much to resist.  (I chose a drink NOT on the menu... custom drinks harder to fake.) 

 They told me that there was a secret handshake to get a discount on the airport shuttle, but I fooled them... anyone* can get the same discount.. it's their regular price... (jack asses)

 I have yet to bump into other infiltrators.. no obvious red hats, or penguin wear....  But I did see w Novell logo on a poster... hmm...  are they turning to the darkside?

 Oddly enough, my (office provided) Windows CE PDA/Phone broke as soon as I arrived in LA.  coincidence?  I think not*

 I will report more later...

Novell isn't a surprise. Ever since the Ximian kids were put in charge, Novell is basically the Linux division of Microsoft. I expect an acquisition within the next two to three years.

This will sound shocking coming from me, but ... just relax and learn all you can. It's useful knowledge to have even if everything they make is complete crap. Just keep your head on and filter out the hype.

A Windows PDA will break if you simply look at it funny.  They are about as durable as a very thin sheet of glass.

DOJ is going to get tougher on antitrust issues.

Hmm. I wonder how long it would take to spin up another antitrust case against Microsoft, and whether it could be finished before a more Microsoft-friendly regime takes over.

Yesterday was.. um.. interesting.  Found a penguin mixed in with the vendors.. I'll try to get photographic evidance today.

MS anounced W7 by the holidays (I know, that's already been announced on the news)  But they are also announcing Office 2010 for the same timeframe.  (great, another version for customers to wine for.)

Looks like SharePoint is the big push this year.  3 out of 4 vendors have some sort of Sharepoint product or service.  No big technology surprizes yet.  Dell and HP are compeating for having the most efficent servers, Wyse has absolutely NOTHING new to show that we haven't seen last year... oh, the GPU is a bit faster....

Anyone stuck in a MS hell office, the B2 of Service Manager will be out this fall, and is worth a look ONLY if you are using the rest of the MS Systems tools (SCOM/WUS/etc....)  It will require 64bit Server 2008 (as will the rest of the new mangement tools.

 More l8er

The Sharepoint push started two years ago.   Last year it seemed like half the vendors were pushing Sharepoint solutions.  My co-worker (big MS advocate) is out at TechEd also.   I haven't heard much from him. 

 

Then again I am the strange one here, and work with anything.   Ah well, I have a couple of Linux VMs to go setup.

Microsoft clearly wants SharePoint to become VendorLockInPoint -- a difficult product to move away from, similar to the way many organizations have foolishly locked themselves into Outlook and Exchange.

It isn't really happening, mainly because SharePoint does nothing useful.

I laugh at livedrive. Lots of dot com startups made sharable drives, no possible revenue model, and they all went away.
Even google isn't doing it.

$56 per year for 100 MB is a revenue model. It's still doomed to fail, though.
