I'm sure that this is being solved on Microsoft's end, and will be remedied in good time. I mean, I'm not a big Microsoft guy either, but if this were a circumstance where the hardware had a defect and caused the system to short or something, and Microsoft were going to fix it, you all couldn't care less. Why's a software bug like this so different?

Comment Music Industry Inspiration? (Score 1) 421

My first idea as an audio guy would be to take some cues from the music industry in their control room designs. Sure, maybe you don't need a client couch for hanging out, but you should be able get everywhere you want in the room by rolling chair (minus if you have to dive behind screens/machines to get things fixed, but even that should be accessible), favor more, smaller, warmer lights over florescent (on dimmers, if you really want them to be as comfortable as they want).

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
