Windows And the award for Most Boring And Non-descriptive Press Release Title 2010 goes to Microsoft for "Microsoft Outlines Business Opportunities for Hardware Makers Across Windows Platform". The press release itself appears to be about as interesting as watching paint dry, until you reach that small part where it says Microsoft has released the first community technology preview of Windows Embedded Compact 7 (1).

As much as the original press release lacks zest (as Thom contends), this blog post takes content quality to new levels, IMO.
The entire post contains no more than the following lines of actual information (that which is not quoted as-is):

1. "Microsoft has released the first community technology preview of Windows Embedded Compact 7."
2. "Windows Embedded Compact 7 is simply the latest version of what was once called Windows CE. There's also Windows Embedded Standard, which has nothing to do with Windows CE but is in fact the follow-up to Windows XP Embedded."
3. "He (Guggenheimer) called Android tablets an 'experiment', and that he expects 'Microsoft's support for Windows 7 will be seen as more valuable over time'. He cites the netbook world as an example. Note that he isn't talking about Windows Embedded Compact 7, but Windows 7."

C'mon Thom, we know you can do better than that. All you have to do is focus on content and leave trolling to those who do it best - us readers!

Cheers.
