What do you call a herd of geeks in a T-shirt stampede? PDC. Yes, Microsoft descended on Los Angeles, California, last week, and along with it the long awaited Windows cloud.

    Planned *predecessor* to Vista ?

    Or unplanned sucks-sessor?

    "On more familiar territory, Microsoft served up some eye-candy by showing off the interface to Windows 7, the planned predecessor to Windows Vista."

    Erm, did I miss the big news story that told us that MS had invented Type-40 Time Machines?

    Or has it not been published yet?

    Really, Windows 7 came before Vista?

    Who edited this?

    Don't even get me started on grammar and punctuation.

    A predecessor to WIndows Vista?

    The MS project to develop a time machine must be coming along nicely.

    Predecessor, I like it. Windows 7 is looking like it'll slot in nicely between XP and Vista.

    So, the cat is out of the bag, Windows 7 is actually Windows XP with the XP & SP3 crossed out & '7' written in indelible felt tip marker on the packaging...

    The market analysts will love it, no development costs, an almost bug free, fairly stable product & it may even be delivered on schedule!

    Gavin/Mary you got to do some post production work on the sound for these radios sessions. Recording from a skype call on pc speakers don't quite cut the mustard. Fatigue cuts in real quick listening to this scratch.

    Don't take it badly...

    Finding out what Azure is sounds like Kreminology. Find out what's in, what's out by examining those slides which made it to the West. "And here it gets really confusing...but if you look at this bit here..."

    Anyway, thanks for at least trying to make Windows 7 and Azure sound like some new and sexy rockstar which one is supposed to be interested in. I will go back to my winter sleep now.
