    I'm not sure what the event was officially called Moby. Was Steve Ballmer at your event?

    There's some more editorial coming from the event, including some cool stuff they showed off...

    I dont think it will be anything as radical as a whole new OS - most likely a flavour of 2k8 that will be more Service orientated.
