My take on the keynote

Overall I'm feeling a tiny bit let down. The demos were cool, but nothing very new or very exciting, except of course for adventureworks and the free silverlight hosting and streaming.

Some of the presentations failed to impress me much, with the video player for the government and the tax cut presentations being the least impressive. The video player suffered a bit of scrubbing, was it due to the presentation environment I couldn't tell, but definitely no wow factor there. The forms application was much more form processing oriented, something you'd have expected for a more business intelligence talk rather than a designer / developer conference.

But then again everybody knows I moan a lot. :)
