I am sitting in the auditorium waiting for the keynote to start. I am curious to see if there are any surprise announcements or if it is just a re-hash of all the recent public announcements. Rumor has it they may announce VS2010 beta 1. I am sure they will highlight Office 2010 and Exchange 2010 – but to what degree I am not sure.
My hotel was a big disappointment – but I picked it and was tricked by the flashy website so I have no one to blame but myself. I feel like I am staying at a Moroccan hostel. Only one free power outlet to charge all my stuff and no desk so I am working from the bed. :)
I was talking to a Microsoftie in line at the Starbucks in the convention center and she mentioned the attendance is around eight thousand. About what they expected given the economy. No cancellations that they are aware of due to the H1N1\Swine virus.
So far, so good. Got some great Exchange sessions coming up and will post more including notes from the keynote later.
