has a man on the scene,
making timely reports from Comdex. Here's report numero uno:
Just finished seeing Bill Gates keynote address to open the convention. It
was basically a showcase of Windows 98, with a few wry, pithy comments
about OS/2, Sun, and Oracle's NCs on the side. If you don't like
Microsoft's Internet Explorer, you're not going to like Win 98. The IE
interface has been expanded from 4.0 to cover the help system, and become
an integral part of Windows. Microsoft has a white paper which outlines
the address. Bill was forced to pay
for his comments later, when his Win 98 machine crashed during a demo.
That's about all from here. I'm headed over to the North wing to review
the Linux Pavillion.
