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."

I think you're trying to be sincere, but along side the correcting of factual errors, you're also attempting to excuse the absurd decisions that microsoft has made in the past and push the blame on to the developers that actually used them.

It really does read like it was taken straight out of .Net Architect. I used to read that for the sheer humor of it. The other MS article with the MS kernel developer rant rings more true: MS is so afraid of screwing up existing customer's applications it just creates new parallel solutions to the same problems instead of adapting the existing one.
