Windows Way back in old and boring January of this year, Microsoft announced they would be working together with the Windows Phone 7 homebrew community, with the goal of creating a stable, supported way for homebrew developers and people interested in homebrew applications to enable side-loading on their WP7 devices. Well, they took their sweet time, but the ChevronWP7 team (Rafael Rivera, Chris Walsh, and Long Zheng) and Microsoft have just announced the results.

Imagine if you bought a PC and they were going to charge you money for the privilege of installing anything not officially endorsed by The Man? People wouldn't put up with this shit on PCs, so why do it on phones?

Stop whining and build your own phone, if you don't like their terms.

You see, that's precisely the problem which he's talking about. You don't have to build your PC yourself to get the "right" to program that computer you own yourself. Any PC will do.

Phones, however, are another story...
