We now have more great "external" embedded expertise here at Microsoft Germany - Embedded MVP Alexander Wechsler from Wechsler Consulting has been approved as one of five Microsoft Regional Directors! (You may know Alexander from various events where he acted as a speaker - like the German VS2005 launch event recently - or from his endorsement of XPe SP2 inside the trial CD package ;-)

If you want to see him live on stage, you'll have a chance at the MEDC 2006 (probably also in Europe) where he'll be talking about HORM - the fastest way to boot up XPe.

Alexander, I'm really excited to have you in the RD program, and I'm looking forward to working with you & rocking the embedded community :-)
