In this latest episode of the Dan & David Show, we dissect the latest tech news, starting with the announcements from Microsoft's Professional Developer's Conference in Los Angeles. David talks about his experience with the Windows Vista beta and details the benefits he sees for IT administrators. I explain my problem with the way Microsoft brings innovations to market, with Office as the example. Should you have to wait several years for some useful interface tweaks? David says Microsoft has a skeleton in the closet--shrink wrapped, packaged software.
We also look into the Oracle/Siebel mating, salesforce.com's proposed ecosystem build out, Google vs. Microsoft and Sun's my-servers-are-better-than-Dell/HP/IBM-servers sales initiative and its detente with Red Hat. All this and more in about 20 minutes that can be delivered directly to your desktop or MP3 player if you're subscribed to our podcasts (See ZDNet’s podcasts: How to tune in), or if you want you can just download the MP3.
