WinHEC Pushed Back

The 2008 Microsoft Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) has been tentatively announced, and it'll take place about six months later this year than last year. While the company says the delay is in response to industry feedback, Microsoft usually has an internal reason for disrupting conference schedules.

Microsoft uses WinHEC to provide information to PC manufacturers, device engineers, systems developers and enterprises on new Windows initiatives and the future of Windows on the PC platform. I attended several WinHECs over the last decade, both as a journalist and as a vendor, and found them to be among the most dynamic and informative conferences around. However, there seems to be less hardware innovation than in the past.

What's your take on the future of PC hardware? Send me your thoughts at [email protected].
