[openfabrics-ewg] Microsoft chooses not to be on Agenda at Dev. Summit

Microsoft has withdrawn their "talk" on the basis it's a primarily Linux
agenda and attendees will not be that interested. They are saying they will
have an observer present. 

OF Windows seems to be somewhat in a hiatus? As an Alliance we should figure
out what we want to do about it? 

One approach might be to form a small group to work out an approach to
Microsoft to try to form a tighter collaboration between the Alliance, per
se, and Microsoft as an alternative to each of the IB h/w vendors working
separately with them, as it appears is now the way it is going??

Microsoft has repeated their strong interest in working with the Alliance
but there so far the evidence of that work is where???? 

Thoughts, please!

Inserted Or and Yaron instead of Voltaire TBDs.

As for the Windows session - I believe we should have it even if
Microsoft doesn't show up. There are issues that we need to discuss

I've addressed these points in prior e-mails, so clearly the  
information is not being received somehow.  None of us have any more  
time before SC to continue this debate.  I'll happy continue to  
discuss this over food and beverage while at SC.

So -- see you all at SC!  :-)
