In the pacific northwest the year 2008 is almost over and we are getting ready to receive a brand new 2009.

2009 is going to be a very active year in terms of community and voice of the customer @ Microsoft because during 2009 we will have the Windows 7 beta, the release of the Vista SP2 and some activity around the new version of Office where MVPs and the technical community will play an active role providing feedback around these products.

In the mean time I want to say thank you to all of you for your vibrant involvement in the technical communities during 2008 and hope all the best for the new year.

Happy New Year!
