The ten best tweets (so far) from Microsoft's global sales meeting

It's MGX time for Microsoft. The Microsoft Global Experience (MGX) is the company's annual sales meeting for about 10,000 selected employees and a few outside guests. What are the attendees(carefully) tweeting?

It's MGX time for Microsoft. The Microsoft Global Experience (MGX) is the company's annual sales meeting for about 10,000 selected employees and a few outside guests.

MGX is in Atlanta again and is running this week. Attendees are being careful about what they tweet, knowing many of us are watching the #MGX hashtag. But already there have been a few interesting and amusing tweets (and pics) from the conference.

Here are a few of my favorite MGX-centric tweets so far (in no particular order):

Just landed in Atlanta. Plane was 1/2 Microsoft and 1/2 Boy Scouts

Hoping I am not the only person at #MGX with an #iPad :s

OH: if google or apple wanted to take us out this would be the place to do it #mgx

Emotional 30-year tribute to Steveb. He was rendered completely speechless. Incredibly intense and moving experience. #MGX (In other words, "See, not everybody is calling for Microsoft's CEO to resign or be impeached.")

"VDI doesn't SOLVE your app-to-OS or app-to-app problems... it CENTRALIZES your app-to-app and app-to-OS problems." #mgx (VDI = virtual desktop infrastructure)

I think that was a cockroach that just flew past me in the Hotel Midtown bar! Love this place: #MGX

In all my years, I've never heard "you have all your teeth" as part of a pickup line. Until today. Atlanta is strange. #mgx

How to say 3 weeks of vacation in MIcrosoft language? "OOF to WPC, MGX & TR" (Translation for those not schooled in Microsoft acronyms: Out of the office to the Worldwide Partner Conference, MGX and the upcoming TechReady conference in Seattle.)

So I must have missed a party yesterday - the gym was completely empty today. #MGX

We would like to welcome all of the people from #microsoft in #atlanta. Please enjoy your stay and don't forget to smoke your #cigars

Microsoft Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner gave his "rah-rah" speech last week at the Worldwide Partner Conference, where he bashed Microsoft competitors Apple, Google, VMware and Oracle. The competitor bashing volume is surely turned up even higher at MGX.

Here's hoping Microsoft has something to show its troops, regarding what's coming on the Windows slate front.... We now know Hewlett Packard hasn't dropped plans for its Windows 7 slate (but Asus has dropped its plans for a Windows Embedded Compact one). Microsoft needs to show existing and potential customers why Windows 7 slates are worth waiting for and (supposedly) better than the iPad.....
