Another year is coming to an end.  2008 was certainly an eventful year for us here at Microsoft.  Windows Server 2008, Windows Small Business Server 2008 and Windows Essential Business Server 2008 were released this year, along with a number of other products in the Enterprise space including Hyper-V, Visual Studio 2008, and SQL Server 2008.  On the Xbox front, the release of the New Xbox Experience (NXE) was more than just a visual overhaul with the addition of Netflix HD streaming, and the Xbox LIVE Party.  New games such as Lips and You’re in the Movies promise to be holiday favorites.

Here at AskPerf, December 23rd, 2008 is a special day for us in particular as it marks our 2nd anniversary.  We’ve posted on a number of different topics in 2008, and as always there was plenty of feedback.  We are only as successful as our readers make us – so Thank You to everyone who reads AskPerf – for your insight, comments, feedback and support.

With that, this is our last post for 2008.  We’re all taking some time off to recharge and get ready for 2009.

From all of us here on the Performance team – Happy Holidays – we’ll see you in 2009!
