    Thanks! I like what Balmer has to say.

    Not to mention Windows 7 and Windows Live.

    I actually fast forwarded past Balmer's talk. LOL ...and er...that intro dude.

    Yeah, those are pretty cool.

    I like the XBox apps myself best! :p

    I skipped to the near end of the Balmer note. I got to see a good portion of the Windows 7 demo before I hit bed. SilverLight is a much nicer streamer then Flash has been on my connection.

    Seconded. I've been really impressed by what I've seen so far. The quality of the HD stream of Obama's acceptance speech in Denver back in August was superb. I don't care too much that it comes from Microsoft, Adobe aren't much better in my book for some of their practices.

    Yeah I just want something that uses the most out of my limited bandwidth at home. I can barely watch a YouTube video in real time but anything with Silverlight comes in smooth with enough left over to browse and it never drops the video! :eek:

    Did you guys see the Kodu Demo?

    I thought it's pretty cool how they have this graphical programming system for kids to make their own games. It reminds me think of all those Warcraft III custom maps that cropped up. :)

    I had heard of it but I liked seeing the demo more then that.
