Some demos are better than others

This virtual usergroup was the most unlucky demo I’ve ever made: LiveMeeting would not connect me to the audio stream, and the phone bridge was kicking me out after a couple of minutes of my talks – and it did it twice! So I was not able to demo anything and basically didn’t get beyond a couple of polls and a few notes on the AD cmdlets roadmap – not much. I am inclined to call this my worst demo ever and hope that all my other demos and sessions in the future will never get as bad. 😉

The good news is that the polls gave great feedback. Everyone on the webcast at least heard of both AD cmdlets and PowerGUI, and the majority of attendees were using the tools. PowerGUI users are actively using both the MMC-like admin UI and the recently added script editor and debugger.

This is incredible and makes us continue improving the products with even more enthusiasm. Both teams are doing their best to get you the next improved drops by Christmas, so stay tuned in! And as usual, you feedback is very welcome on the AD management and PowerGUI discussion forums. We are there all the time, listening and implementing your requests.

    So that’s what it was! Too many bears between me in Russia and Marco in Canada… 😉
