  • Blog Post: Investment in IE is NOT a Stop-Gap

    There was one section of the story that got on ZDNet and CNet that I think is worth a response. "Longhorn isn't going to be delivered in the timeframe Microsoft originally expected, and users probably can't wait that long for a stabilized browser. So as a stop-gap move, they are going to shore...
  • Blog Post: Why wait for Avalon?

    Frank Hillman responded to my previous post of Is XAML a big deal? and asks Why wait for avalon? especially when there are some great tools and libraries available today. That's a great question. In short I don't think you should wait. If you need to get something done today then you should go ahead...

The really interesting stuff in Longhorn can be...

See the Holiday MSDN TV show to see some of this. However there seems to be a little confusion here as seen in Dino's unprogramming...
  • Blog Post: Why Longhorn and Avalon?

    I'm excited about Longhorn and Avalon in particular as that is what I'm working on. I thought as one of my first posts here I'd talk about the computer experience I personally see Avalon and Longhorn enabling. I don't know if anyone else out there watches the CSI and CSI: Miami shows on television...
  • Blog Post: Welcome

    Welcome to my blog. I work as a Technical Evangelist on Longhorn here at Microsoft specialising in the new presentation subsystem known as Avalon. I plan to post occasionally here about Longhorn and although I can't promise to post daily I will try to do so frequently to update people on current things...
