Microsoft Jonathan Shapiro, main developer of Coyotos and BitC, has announced on the project's mailing list that he has been hired by Microsoft, and that he won't be able to continue to work on Coyotos and BitC. He promises to deliver a final release of BitC, with all the intended features, but he warns that that may not be possible. At Microsoft, he's going to work on the Midori project.

I dont care about what Jonathan Shapiro does with his life. The "give up you hopes and dreams" was a reaction to "he may as well work for a large corporation and make use of it" and not about Jonathan in particular.

Well, what would I be wrong about? The products they make are crap, they do not follow the common standards, they trashtalk others publicly. The worst thing is that they can misbehave like this as much as they want because they own the market.

I'm just giving my honest oppinion. If I didnt want to be subjective I would write articles on Wikipedia.
