The Big Day : MGB Atlanta 2005


How can I describe this day? It’s hard, as I am a bit tired, but I’ll just write what comes out, stream of consciousness style….


12 Hour in the Georgia Dome


Presentations from all the senior VPs


Spanking Demos of upcoming products, such as “Office 12”, Windows Longhorn (soon to have real name), IE7, XBOX 360, Windows Media Center, new MSN Messenger, MSN Search, MSN Spaces, MSN Hotmail, MS CRM 3.0, Windows Mobile 5.0, sneak preview of new mobile devices, some out there work that is being done by MSR and heaps of other demos that I can’t remember.


To be honest, I can’t wait to get my hands on “Office 12” and Longhorn.


Guest appearance from Michael Johnson and the talented all-female classical quarter Bond


Inspiring stuff from Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer, and the other execs.


And then to cap it all off, a party hosted by D&PE at The Compound, featuring Helles Bells, an all girl AC/DC tribute band


Time to sleep – we start again in 6 hours

    Microsoft just announced that Windows "Longhorn", which is the codename they have used for the past few years for the next version of the Windows operating system (and is due out late next year), is going to be called "Windows Vista". The name has been growing on me…i always thought that including the year behind a product name was always strange. I also think its a nice touch that they made the announement to MS staff first at the Microsoft Global Briefing, which is a huge event they hold each year that is on at the moment in the US….
