Must mean it's over for the most part I don't see what else they could talk about otherwise they would keep spouting out the same stuff over and over again.

the keynote crashes after 4mins... billgates starts talking and then nothing...

tried it with 500k and 200k streams

I must say this was some of the most marketing bull**** i've seen yet from microsoft! It really was boring and impersonal. I can just imagine the group of execs in a room sitting and thinking "what's a good catch phrase? oh, i know, the wow starts now. yeah, that's very human!" I swear the whole presentation seemed so much like an infomercial, it was ridiculous! I don't know what has gotten into microsoft.

On top of that, it looked to me like windows actually got HARDER to use. One of key things about ease of use is simplicity, and microsoft strays FAR from this. It just all got way too complicated.

By no means am I an apple fanboy, but the macworld iphone keynote address was one of the most interesting and fun to watch presentions ever!

so those are my thoughts anyway...

Pathetic show... So stupid and unorganized... SB was just weird... BG said "something" and disappered...

Seems like show was prepared in "last 5 minutes"... Disgusting...

Is the on demand version working for you guys? All streams are just broken links for me and I'm dieing to watch it!!!

has any one been having problems watching the webcast as i am not getting audio, i am using Windows Media Player 11 bu i am getting nothing at all.

my other audio files work ok its just this webcast.

any suggestions

Thanx

How lacklustre was that?

Most exciting bit was from the Mom, saying, "It was because of me the DVD button was put into Vista"..
Oh please......major yawn...

Watching Gates on the Daily Show was better though...

ah, anyway, hoping for a quick release for Leopard.... man that better rock or else im not getting excited anymore
about OS's...
