I realize this was a free event and we really have no right to complain, but after having been to some similar Microsoft events I was a little disappointed with this one. The presentations seemed to be lacking in both content and polish (lack of technical detail, a few too many demos not working, etc). And I must say, I’m as little slighted that attendees in the US were given free copy of Office 2007. Was that just a timing issue, or was it an intentional decision to limit the number of giveaways?
