Microsoft Gets Community Sites Mad At Them

Earlier today I found out Microsoft was asking community sites to pull down screen shots of Longhorn. Aaarrrrgggghhhh.

Could we have handled that any worse?

So, anyway, because we’ve screwed up and made nearly all of our friends mad at us I got to sit down with Jim Allchin this morning and got approval to put the video interview I filmed with him up tonight.

“Who are you?” I ask.

“I’m a geek,” he answers. Heh.

Anyway, I’m very sorry to the community sites. There are a bunch of very good legal reasons why we needed the screen captures pulled down. I don’t understand them cause I’m not a lawyer, but I’ll let the lawyers stick up for themselves (get a blog darn it! ).

What did Allchin talk about? A whole raft of things — including where “the thrill” is in Longhorn (hint: the builds that are out there so far don’t have the thrilling stuff). I’ll try to get up a table of contents shortly.

Yes, Steve Gillmor, we have a little fun with you at the beginning of the video. Jim remembers “Allchin’s last stand.” I tried to keep my camera work a bit more, um, under control this time.
