Why do 1,500 people go to a conference about a project planning tool? Beats me, but there are clearly some people that are passionate not only about project management in general, but Microsoft Office Project in specific. The former I can understand. The latter baffles me. That said, I can see MS is including some nice features in Project 12. Stuff like: multi-level undo, selecting tasks not assigned to you during timesheet entry (yea), improved Outlook integration, and more. I haven’t seen anything yet on an RSS feed to provide project task status updates. To me, that would be cool.
