No, I haven't seen the road show. My company gets invited now and then
to whatever MS comes up with, but I haven't been to one yet! Did I
miss something besides fear and uncertainty?!

The lates is that our customers keeps asking me why we are not running
on .NET and I answer: "Sure we are, most of our app is build from tool
comming from www.sourceforge.NET" and our customers reply "Ohh...thats
where the .NET part comes from!" Out customers know nothing about
development, but they sure do like all the new buzzwords.
