Neowin Live Blog: Microsoft PDC 2009, November 17-19

Neowin will be covering Microsoft's 2009 Professional Developers Conference (PDC) live from Los Angeles next week.

We've teamed up with a number of well known Microsoft bloggers to blog the Day 1 and Day 2 keynotes. The live blogging will include Ed Bott, Kip Kniskern, Long Zheng, Mary Jo Foley, Paul Thurrott, Rafael Rivera and myself Tom Warren.

Last year this proved a success with thousands of you joining in, commenting on the Windows 7 announcements.

Once again we will all contribute to a single Coveritlive liveblog so you'll be able to read all of us live from Neowin and and the other bloggers web sites. The different opinions/commentary each of us will provide should make it an interesting read.

The link to read the live blog will be embedded to a news article on the days. Our PDC coverage will include all the latest on Office 2010, Office Web Apps, Windows Azure and cloud computing.

I have been reading that there were some pretty major cuts this year: No buses, no Universal Studios party, no hot breakfast, no on-site bookstore. Is this all true?

More like catching up. IE6 was dysmal, and IE7 was waaaay behind, and IE8 closed the gap by quite a bit, but there's still lots of room for improvement.

It would be better if IE9 or whatever it will be , will concentrate on performance, atleast it shld be able to beat or just touch present browsers in JS and all. Its a dark spot on 7s snappy performance

Plus VS2010 final release dates and info, hopefully. It is a developers conference, after all. ;-)

Yeah, and 2010 looks like a decent improvement over 2008...

Aside from the new Office and any server side stuff, anything else big that's going to be talked about?

We can already assume that windows 8 this year and next are out of the question, so probably lot's of Azure stuff, but let's wait and see
