|Micro$oft still doesn't get it.
There are two ways you can move the programming world:
1 - by giving, such as adding C#
2 - by taking, such as making something else more difficult or taking it away
Method 1 can be used with success, C# being a deliberate example.
As for Method 2?
You'd think that even they would have figured out, after the colossal failure of Vista, that people can and do 'just say no'. If the regular rabble are willing to turn around and ignore their upgrade, surely they could have guessed that developer will, too.
My wisdom not being at the same lofty level as theirs, I can only assume that they think there's some reason for a C++ programmer to overspend on VS2010 if they don't want to even use the CLI.
So, now, once again, they have to undo their damage.
Luckily, for many of us, we've also adapted to another Micro$oft favorite: don't install anything until the first few service packs have been released.
Behold, Micro$oft. I Stand Facing East In Order That I May Fart in Your General Direction.
