Scott Lock Thoughts on .Net, Caparea.net and Windows Phone

One of our developers going to TechEd today received  a bad news, good news email from Microsoft  (CRG Events) about TechEd 2009 in Los Angeles.  It said:

"We have made a change to previously published agendas. The attendee party will no longer take place, however we are planning an alternative social gathering which will continue to provide a great opportunity for attendees to network with each other in a fun social setting. Additionally this year you will receive a full copy of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 when released to market as part of registration."

At first disappointed, this developer was then excited to see he was getting a full license of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 some time in the future.  Although, I'm not sure if that is better than the usual 2 hours of endless beer and usually bad theme park food.  I guess that depends on how much he likes the new peek feature.

Wow! if that is true then that is really enticing and for sure many developers will attend. It cannot be denied that the full copy of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 is expensive. To get it for free is something!
