Have you ever wondered what is the connection between Microsoft developers, Paris Hilton, rock and Windows Vista? Well now you have the answer, courtesy of Nick White, Microsoft Product Manager. With the development process for Windows Vista at an end, the developers have turned to Rock-n-Roll!
But what has Paris Hilton to do with anything? Well, you will have to bear with me for that. But it will be worth it, I promise. You will be able the find out just what unorthodox methods the Windows Vista developers have applied in building the operating system.
Via this link you will be able to access a Soapbox video delivering an insight into the developer world at Microsoft. Three devs that have contributed to the creation of the Aero interface in Vista are indulging in a little rock out experience, but be warned, they’re only doing their jobs.
“Now that the coding of Windows Vista has been completed, the product has been handed off to our partners for them to ready drivers and applications that work with it, and the Marketing department is tasked with finding new and clever ways to sell it, you must be wondering: what exactly is our development team up to? Well, wonder no more. A couple of them (bottom right) have taken some time out for a new pursuitsince releasing Windows Vista. As this "rockumentary" series shows, these guys are pretty good. (I guess that's what they mean when they say the dev team is now devoting itself to a little R & R – rock-n-roll!)”, revealed White.
And by following this link you will be able to hear all about their musical influences. C++ is at the top, and then Paris Hilton, of course, and last but not least judging by the general consent: LonelyGirl15 (bottom left).
