So this year the BUILD conference will be held in my former play area – San Francisco.

I’ll be there for a few days to bring you the sights and sounds from the conference.

As usual, I tend to ask readers of the blog what they would like to know about from Microsoft this year. I usually get the chance to speak to a few Microsoft sources on and off the record so your questions would be appreciated.

I know that the rumor is that Windows 9 will be addressed at this conference. Between me and you, I wouldn’t hold my breath on that one.

As far as I can tell, there will probably be some high level vision statements about the future of Windows and some rah rah welcome our new CEO BS.

Other than that, I fully expect the company to talk about how customers are loving Windows 8.1.

I will be looking for more information on the following:

  • Ecosystem integration – Hows the integration of Phone, Tablets, PC’s, Laptops etc going
  • Enterprise security updates
  • Staffing changes, new announcements
  • Developer tools and announcements
  • Satya’s keynote – to see if he will be specific or more party line?

Etc Etc..

What about you guys? What will you be looking to hear?

Use the comments below…

    Well, Windows 9 will be a purchase rather than a free update ala Win8 to Win8.1, right? Also, some news about “Gemini” would be nice.
