So, my last post was in French… If you are wondering here’s what it was all about!
One thing different about the Microsoft stand at Apple Expo is that it is not all about Office! We look at what the Mac community is interested in and organize some presentations around these.
For example, this year we have some people from the Expression Media team demoing their products. We even invited Jean-François Vibert, a famous French photographer (http://www.actionreporter.com), to come and talk about how he uses Expression Media on his Mac.
We also have some presentation on Silverlight for Developers, collaboration between Mac OS and Vista, Antidote Rx – advanced French proofing and dictionaries available for Office and other applications.
Yves Cornil, one of our MVP, is presenting on creating a blog with Windows Live Space on your Mac, Apple User Groups, and connecting Mac and Vista together.
We also have space at the stand dedicated to Vista (integration with the Mac), Expression products, Xbox 360 (hey, Mac users also like to play – Halo 3 anyone?) and Mac Office of course!
Warning: We are listening to you!
That’s right, we are listening to YOU! Last year, when I was at Apple Expo, a customer came to me with a great idea! As promised, I escalated it back to our development team and you can find it now in Office 2008. It is small and simple and it makes me proud to be at Apple Expo, listening to your ideas for the next BIG thing for Office (but I can’t reveal what it is yet – I’ll keep you posted)! So please, don’t hesitate to drop by and make a suggestion 😉
