What a paradox!


I don't know what to believe. Normally, history has shown that everything Miguel thinks is great from Microsoft is totally wrong....so if he does not like something does that make it actually good?


So...confusing.

No. It just makes it so horrendously and obviously bad that even Miguel can't credibly rationalize it.
