Secrets and Betas
Scott may or may not be testing Windows Home Server at the moment [http://www.hanselman.com/blog/SsshhSecretsAndBetasAndNDAsOhMy.aspx] and asks what everyone else has beta’d for it to die on you. I developed and co-wrote this book [http://www.amazon.com/Early-Adopter-HailStorm-NET-Services/dp/186100608X] only to have it become irrelevant about three days after it was published. For those with long memories, MS also started something called Chrome which died a death as well. Must have been those Pentium 3’s it needed to run in those days. Still, it used .x files which in those heightened times of Mulder and Scully was kind of fun.
These days I get to play with nicer pre-release stuff, sans book writing, with due dates in a couple of weeks. No, I won’t say what - not yet anyway.Posted on February 1, 2007 #Geek Stuff
