Microsoft hissed and booed at Intel event

Developers don't like Windows 2000 up them

Intel Developer Forum A keynote speech by a senior executive at the Intel Developer Forum in Palm Springs this morning was received by delegates with hisses and boos. Carl Stork, a senior hardware exec at Microsoft, was outlining Microsoft's plans for the Windows 2000 platform, only six months after the software company told the same delegates the final beta of Windows NT would arrive by Thanksgiving Day 1998 (see MS under real pressure now to finish beta by Thanksgiving and MS promises NT 5 in 1999). Microsoft's graphical demo, which was supposed to take advantage of the Pentium III's Streaming SIMD instructions, fell over in the first few minutes. Intel and Microsoft don't seem to be getting on very well, do they? ®
