Windows Server 2008 Launch Event

Thursday, March 13, 2008

I'm attending the Microsoft launch event for Windows Server 2008 today in San Francisco.

It's nice to see so many partners here. The company I work for, Convergent Computing, has a booth discussing our services and raffling off copies of our newest book, Windows Server 2008 Unleashed.

Right now I'm in a session about Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V. There are lots of people here, maybe 800. The speaker and demos are quite good.

I bit of disappointment is heard from some that the copy of Windows Server 2008 that Microsoft is giving away to participants is licensed for only one year. :(

Overall, there's been a good turnout and a lot of interest from attendees. It's been worth my time.
