Beta News has a good review of 2005 from a Microsoft perspective - it reminds me of how much has been going on this last year including some major product lauches (Visual Studio 2005, SQL Server 2005, Xbox 360, Windows Live, 64-bit Windows, MSN Spaces out of beta).

I've listed here some Microsoft posts from my blog - lots gone on...lots more in 2006.
