Off to the MVP Summit

See some of you at the Microsoft MVP Summit starting on Monday evening?

What's important to me is to see Microsoft's directions on Capital Markets. I would liek to see a cohensive story on:

- Grid computing (Windows CCS and possible synergies with Digipede)

- Quasi-realtime Analysis Services, with associated WPF visualizations

- Support for parallel constructs in C#/NET (Microsoft Research Accelerator for GPUs)

- Any forward movement for Complex Event Processing

I'd be interested to know how it is that financial institutions are prepared to use Microsoft software in the first place.

In the Telco world, MS operating systems are virtually banned, on the basis that they do not provide enough reliability, resilience and performance.

How come the trading systems are prepared to take that risk?
