Today was the first day of Microsoft events at CES 2007, the Windows Vista RTM Labs – an insight into the Windows Vista development backstory from program managers, directors and other people who might have signed off on one thing or another. There were a total of 5 sessions presented on a variety of topics including hardware, software, design, testing and SKUs presented by a range of leads including Dave Block, Paul Donnelly, Karsten Januszewski, Tjeerd Hoek and Beckett Dillard.
There’s an extremely extensive summary from Jason Dunn’s Digital Media Thought, a hot 64-bit discussion from Ryan Hoffman’s Extended 64, a brief overview from Mauricio Freitas, an overview of the UX session from Larry Richman’s PROnetworks and a summary from Mary Jo Foley. Here’s some photos from the Labs from me.
Notice how Robert McLaws is in every photo.
UI inconsistencies? Not if you look at these charts. Everything’s as clear as glass. Blue for this, green for that. Of course, why didn’t I think of that.
After a hard day at work, we were invited to a party-dinner which I don’t have much to say except these photos.
Ryan Hoffman shows us the pyramid dance. Neowin guys follow.
Robert McLaws: “For the open source movement!”
As usual, more photos on my Flickr CES 2007 photoset. It could only get better from here on, right?
