Apologies for how long it's been since I last posted here. We've been working hard on Visual Studio 2005 trying to get it finished and out the door. I've also been getting my team (VSCore) ready for Tech Ed 2005 in Orlando, which is where I am at right now. We're on Day 3 of the conference now, and we've all been having a blast. Being able to talk face-to-face with our customers and partners is always refreshing. We have been able to receive feedback from all of you on VS 2005 through the MSDN Product Feedback Center for almost a year now, but speaking with you directly is incredibly valuable for us.

I was interviewed by Mike Hall from the Mobile and Embedded Devices group yesterday for the Podcast series that they've been doing.

We have a website set up for all of this, along with links to different Podcasting clients, which is available here: http://www.microsoft.com/events/teched2005/podcast.mspx.
