WinHEC Pushed Back
The 2008 Microsoft Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) has been
tentatively announced, and it'll take place about six
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.
