Day 1 has come and gone by the time I got back to my hotel last night I was pretty much dead on my feet.  I had to miss the keynote to finish configuring my demo machines and put the finishing touches on my slides.  I also realized yesterday that I completely forgot my camera which really limits my ability to provide photos – never fails so you’ll have to make due with flicker flickr.com tagged PDC2008  I spent most of yesterday manning the Microsoft Virtualization booth in the “big room” – which was fun I got to talk to a lot of different people and show three three layers of virtualization and four different virtualization products.  Windows Hyper-V (obviously), System Center Virtual Machine Manager, App-V (aka Softgrid), and our VDI solution using Citrix’s broker.  The new Windows Azure cloud platform made a huge splash – it was the buzz of the conference yesterday and it was all over the blogosphere (Windows Azure defined, Microsoft looks at new computing world through…, What Ray Ozzie sees in Azure's cloud).

I think that’s about it for now – more to come tomorrow.
