Do more with less

"Do more with less" was one of Steve Ballmer's slogans at the keynote on Monday.

Goals that are so well known:

  • Productivity
  • Total cost of ownership

Goals that Microsoft supports with upcoming tools. Of course, these are the reasons for doing upgrades.

Steve moved into the history: "Do you remember what we had 10 years ago?
Many people had no PC's, no Internet, no mobile phones…".
No TCP/IP stack included with the operating system. Hundreds of different vendors offered TCP/IP stacks. This was also one of my arguments against anti-MS cases before I've talked about the removal of the calculator.

What will happen the next 10 years?
Steve: "All I see is blue skies"

Steve mentioned interesting partnerships with the VSIP program: Oracle and Visual Studio.

New tools and technologies:

  • Visual Studio 2005 Team System
  • Web Services Enhancements 2.0
  • Microsoft Office Information Bridge Framework
