But TechEd was a heck of a lot of fun. I met a bunch of really smart people, and was able to combine a bit of business with a bit of pleasure. The RD group was invited out to the Restaurant Barcelonetta. It's in the marina, and we had a table open to the water. It was a fantastic view, and the food was excellent. I recommend it!
One of my highlights of Teched was our MS and Open Source talk. It was very interesting and it certainly was very topical. As soon as I get permission, I'll blog the comments we got.
I also spent time on the Ask the Experts stand - answering questions on Windows 2000/3 and Active Dierctory, plus fielding questions about Virtual Server. It was fun - and interesting to hear real customer feedback.
