  1. Great interview! Thanks to Jan and Biswajit. Follow-up questions…

    (1) You mention success means that we can see each other. What do you mean by that? In person? A convention? Meetings with video chat? More photos on our profile? =^)

    (2) You mention that the editor in TechNet Wiki is frustrating. What are the problems you're having? We just fixed the "Edit Profile" bug that's been very difficult for 6 months or so. Right now we're pushing on a "no scrollbars" bug. But there are also issues where tables might be frustrating. So I'd like to know what is the most difficult for you.

    Thanks!

  2. And what's your avatar image? A spaceship going through the clouds? =^)

    Thanks!

    You can do Windows 2012 2012 r2 Schema upgrade is an automated process. If you have not done manually. That will take automatically.
