We can't write software but we can put on a stage performance.
Perhaps that was the mistake - so put Danny Boyle in charge of Windows development. He after all can deliver a world class performance on time.
While trying not to let themselves be too distracted by the 30-odd interns doing Glee Club in the courtyards of Redmond, Microsoft workers kicked off September with a flurry of releases for Windows 10, .NET Core, Visual Studio and more. Microsoft goes all Musical Theatre for its latest video Interns and employees at Microsoft …
There's nothing refreshing about am-dram in my experience. But then, for me, the word 'glee' conjures up images of a delighted Emperor Palpatine.
The whole thing suits MS though, after all, their software releases of late could only be considered poor dress rehersals submitted to paying theatre goers.
I'm really impressed - not so much the song and dance - but the music is outstanding. Composer, orchestrator (especially), conductor and entire band from within the company's ranks. (I saw one 'session musician' sneak in there!) Now if only they had a brass band - it could be Grimethorpe but high tech ;-)
And what the hell is an "Explorer Intern"?
Yes, that's probably because they're generally not being sold any more and are supplanted by Oculus products. I have one, complete bargain at £150 in the last Black Friday sale.
At the time the WMR headsets had the advantage of not needing any base stations, and having a higher resolution. The Rift S has removed those advantages, and the other Oculus products such as the Quest are completely wires free. The only advantage WMR might have is price, and it hasn't gone on sale again.
Not to mention that in general the Oculus store is a lot more complete than the Windows store for VR. For a lot of apps you really need to use SteamVR, and that's typical Steam - updating all the time, and sometimes breaking.
