If you have been watching CTV this weekend, you may have caught a segement on the 20th anniversary of Windows. Oh and yes, you would have seen me demoing Windows Vista… If you didn’t, we have been celebrating looking at the last 20 years and looking forward to the future with Windows Vista so keep watching.
The press event last week enabled me to showcase some of the features around the Security, Management, Connectivity and Search etc. Though in 10 minutes you can but scratch the surface. It was however a privilege to work along side David Hemler (President Microsoft Canada) and Elliot Katz (Windows Product Manager) at such an interesting event. Prior to the Windows Vista session a number of partners showcased their techologies over the years and gave a glimpse of what they are doing today and looking towards the future with Windows.
The demos I did were:
User Account Protection
Volume Shadow Copy
The Mobility Manager
Windows Collaboration (Ad-Hock Desktop)
Windows Search and saved queries
Organising data in Vista
Flip (Alt + TAB)
Flip 3D (Winkey + TAB)
There were a number of interviews conducted after the event and I hope you all had a chance to connect.
