Go to PDC if you want early Windows Seven bits

Microsoft is making more details about PDC public, including mention that PDC attendees will be given a pre-beta version of Windows 7. Sounds great.

It’s good to see that Microsoft is finally going to be sharing Windows 7 bits with developers. If you’re like me, and keenly interested in Windows’ latest features, such as multi-touch, there’s no subsitute for having the code to work with. I don’t think even Microsoft-proper appreciates what can be acheived with multi-touch and the having Windows 7 to work with make help to inspire. It’s going to be a lesson learned inside and outside of the company. Once I get through this round of chemo/radiation I’ll do what I can to be more explicit what I’m thinking here. In the meantime Surface and the iPhone look to be two of the best “public” platforms for developing multi-touch applications on. And it’s great to see multi-touch getting a session at PDC.

I hope the Tablet and multi-touch developers that attend PDC will share lots of what they see. I’ll probably have to view from the sidelines this time around, though if the Dr’s give me a thumbs up, I’d love to sneak in at least for bit. That would be nice. There’s nothing like going to a conference like PDC and just bumping into people and talking and learning.
