Expect to see a whole host of this .NET stuff popping up all over the place like a swarm of reanimated zombies... Amongst the highlights for next year's blitz of MS products are:

"Visual Studio .NET 2003
"Office 11", the next generation of Microsoft Office
Exchange Server "Titanium"
SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition
Web services
SharePoint Team Services
MSN Messenger Connect for Enterprises
.NET Speech technologies
MS Automotive

More here.

Sorry... Was that ANOTHER version of Visual Studio? Oh, and XP fans will be pleased to hear that there is another version of XP Plus comming out which you can read more about here.

As regards Office 11, I wonder what beast of a hyper-threading, multi-gigabyte RAM enabled killer-rig you will need to type a letter next year.....
