OK - it's been a while since I last posted. Many things were going on.
The last post was in the Directory Experts Conference-Timeframe. Wow - a lot was going on. I'll write later some thoughts about DEC, even if others have covered it well (like Gil, Joe, Jorge, Tomek) it's worth some words.
What else was going on? OK - recently I've got ready for TechEd Orlando, where I answer questions in the Ask-the-Experts Area at the Windows Server - Active Directory Booth. Then I'm busy with a roadshow about Windows Server 2008 in Germany. If you are in Germany and have business-relationships with Computacenter go to www.computacenter.de/veranstaltungen or ask your contacts to join. We have done and will do 6 locations until end of June (already been to Ludwigshafen, Nuremberg, Stuttgart and Saarbrücken and will be in Frankfurt and Munich in June), with more location coming up in the second half of 2007. I did a lot to organize and create these events, and I'm working together with some great collegues here, so if you are able to take a chance and join.
Additional NetPro has announced that they will bring the Directory Experts Conference to Europe again this year, and I'm glad that I'm able to help being an active part of that conference. I'm looking forward to it very much.
Otherwise ... many customer events and other things around Windows Server 2008 - this will be a great release and customers are asking about it like crazy. It's always a pleasure to see a product being sucessful where you were able to provide good feedback on and you know that this feedback was aprechiated and taken into credit. I'm looking forward to the release, and as much as I've tested the previous and current versions, and what I know from RC1, this will be a blasting release. If you didn't had a chance to look at it - do it now - you're already late.
