Carl Prothman, in his PDC summary, expresses his dislike of PDC not focusing on current technology as well as new (unreleased) technology.
I understand your frustration regarding no sessions on current technology, but this was PDC, not Tech-Ed. The point of PDC has always been to preview new and upcoming technologies, never to rehash older (albeit, current) technologies. One positive note I did see regarding current technologies was the migration information for current code into Indigo. That indicates Microsoft IS thinking of current development and how to transition into future development.
