Microsoft "Most people understand that Windows is used by a variety of people who have a variety of needs, ranging from corporate server to workstation to POS terminals to home PC and beyond. Most people accept that whenever Microsoft updates Windows, it has to balance the competing requirements to find some kind of workable compromise. There is however another set of competing requirements that many do not really register, even those that call themselves power users or are IT admins. It is a conflict between developers/programmers and Microsoft itself."

People had always hoped that some third party (e.g. and especially Linux) would kill Microsoft. As suspected, however, it's going to be Microsoft that kills Microsoft. This article shows exactly how Microsoft is killing itself by turning its back on the very policy (developers developers developers) that made Windows win in the first place.
