Re: Positive direction

I have been a fun for Windows for a long time and I strongly believe that they will pull this idea through. This project will be advantageous to users and developers since there will be easy to deploy across multiple devices. It will also enable windows to expand their operating system across many applications. I therefore encourage Windows to fasten this project and make it real as soon as possible.

Reading through the threads here I am filled with regret for missing out on this year's EELive. But still even though I personally could not attend, I have to thank you guys for providing the likes of us with such useful information and snippets on the things and activities that took place there (including this particular article). Back to this piece, it is clear that if the new console becomes a reality as Windows hope it will, then it will definitely be a serious contender among the platforms that support the development of apps for wearable gadgets.

As someone new to the EETimes community I must say that I enjoyeed meeting everyone at EElive! too.  So much happened at the lunch table that It is hard to remember everything.

As for the take on Microsoft.  I have been a proponent of open source since the 1970s when in high school.  It is ironic in a way that it was Microsoft, who slammed the early Homebrew community for a bad busness model. 

Personally I have always seen the profits in the hardware with software as the 'hook.'  This may be changing as we enter the era of cheap hardware.  The implications in the slowdown of 'Moores law,' and the globalization of design.

I have to admit, that I differ a bit in my perspective than those that have been contributed by my friends.  I personally am excited about what Windows has been doing.  I only wish that they would move a bit faster.  I see the direction that they are going as a positive one that will open up their OS and development tools across many applications.  The easier it is to deploy across multiple devices, the better it will be for users and developers.

Susan,

 

I am glad that I mistook you for someone else.  I also enjoyed meeting you.  There really is something about having all these people together in person as opposed to just words on a page on the internet.  I am looking forward to next year.

Javier,

Igualmente!  It really was pretty neat to see that around that table we could recruit and find almost all we needed to get our new project off the ground.  I look forward to seeing you again.

Hi Aeroengineer, it was nice meeting you at EELive conference. Thanks for sharing the clever projects -- you're the aeronautics engineer who likes model submarines. That tiny printed circuit board you designed is amazing. I agree EE Live was interesting -- it did feel like a community coming together. I met a lot of you who comment regularly on this site. Yes, engineers usually have good insights into technology, since you have a more intimate knowledge of it than just a regular every day user would have. Cheers. See you next year at EE Live.

@Aeroengineer: "Right there at the lunch table"

There was so much talent around a table!! Scientists, electronic engineers, mechanical engineers, technical writers... I'm really looking forward for meeting you again, amigo mío ;-)

I love it, I know when each of those quotes were taken.  Right there at the lunch table.  EELive was great, and it is neat to see these guys input into this article.
