Here's the deal, i have enough topics to blog about for the next several months, but sooner or later the steam in this engine will run out.

So I'm looking to our customers or other interested parties to help by suggesting topics of interest to *you*.

Are you interested in more of the backstory of how and why decisions were made?

Are you interested in how decisions are made *today*?

Do you want to know some of my darkest fears with respect to componentization that keeps me up at night? (this is true, ask anyone on my team!)

What we generally won't talk about here is Longhorn Embedded, you'll have to hear it in person at the Embedded DevCon in 6 weeks. This is your chance to see BillG give a keynote speech. Best of all you get to meet me.<grin>

If you're building embedded devices I *am* interested in hearing from you as to where we can do better in LHe for your device category wrt componentization, reducing your time to market, integration of the EEFs into your device, etc...? Let me know and we'll talk about it here.

Thanks.

  • William, can you be more specific as to which aspect of deployment you'd like to discuss? Are you referring to the age old conundrum of "how to get the image onto the device"? And if so, are you looking for an "on the factory floor" scenario or "in the field" scenario.

    BTW, i LOVE that "Developers, Developers..." speech from SteveB. <grin>

    Thanks
  • Srivathsan,
    I'll look into getting some CMI basics posted. While the decision to not document CMI was a concious one long ago, we haven't tried to hide the fact that you can easily "discover" a lot about the objects and methods exposed in the public scripts that embedded in some components or in the CMIEXP.WSF tool in the ValueAdd folder of the CD.

    It would help if you can tell me what it is you're trying to do that requires knowledge of CMI.

    Thanks
  • Actually, every part of deployment is of interest to me. I haven't been able to find too much information on it now. Lots of basic stuff, but when it comes to putting the image on the disk, there isn't much information, and what information there is, it is pretty advanced. And when I mean putting an image on a disk, I mean from doing this efficiently in development (why can't I mount a VPC disk on my dev machine so I can create my XPE image directly on it, then boot to VPC to test it?), the steps to prepare an acceptable image for deployment to hundreds of machines on the factory floor, deploying images on various media (DOC, flash, USB disk, IDE), and remotely deploying images and updates. If we could get more info on these subjects done in a way more easily accessible by noobs (like the excellent video series introducing XPE development), I think it would help out many developers.
