Geeks With Blogs
The Caffeinated Geek Tech Obsessed in Winnipeg

Breakfast was pretty unimpressive.  Egg omelet things and some nasty sausage patties.  I went for a bagel and yogurt.

The keynote was very IT centric talking about Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2.  Some very cool new features around virtualization.  And the big news is that both will be available for the holiday season (as expected).

There was also a sneak peek into Office 2010 and Exchange 2010 which promise to improve ability to manage mail.  Search looks improved (especially able to search attachments with OWA).

While having breakfast this morning I was able to synch my mail and found out that I got on the list to get a free Palm Treo to use for the week from Palm and Sprint.  Free voice and data.  VERY BIG DEAL since the roaming charges on my Rogers plan from Canada are obscene for my iPhone.  I have to give it back at the end of the week with a survey.  Not a bad deal.

OK.  I’m off to my first breakout where I’m gonna check out Dave Chappell’s Azure Services Platform talk.

More to come…
