This if the first year I’ve missed the PDC (now Build) since 2003. I originally dismissed going because it seemed all about Windows 8 (Client). Once it became clear that it is a full PDC I thought “I should go”, but then decided “eh, last one wasn’t such a big deal.”
Anyway, I’m not there this year. I think I will go next time, if only because it seems weird *not* to be there.
