WEB: The most ironically massive Microsoft web site – “The New Efficiency”

image The other week we launched a web site called “The New Efficiency” which describes how customers to become more efficient and “do more with less” through the use of Microsoft latest wave of products, namely Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Exchange Server 2010.

In a bit of irony though, the front page of the web site is MASSIVE because it downloads a large interactive Silverlight environment.  The first page load may take as long as a full minute to load over a 3Mb pipe before you ever ready touch anything on the screen.  Not particularly efficient if you ask me.

That being said, when you load it up, you’ll likely find it pretty immersive and interactive.  Here’s a sample of what you’ll be able to see:

  • 5 Keynote Presentations from the Microsoft San Francisco Launch event, TechEd Europe, and Exchange Connections in Las Vegas.
  • Overviews for the Desktop, the Server, and the Unified Communications space.
  • Overviews of Security
  • A full redelivery of what was presented at the Exchange 2010 US Event

All in all, a pretty good site… just the initial load takes a while.
