Microsoft "A few weeks ago, we shared our plans for the Express editions of Visual Studio 2012. As we've worked to deliver the best experience with Visual Studio for our platforms with Windows 8, Windows Phone, and for Web and Windows Azure, we heard from our community that developers want to have for Windows desktop development the same great experience and access to the latest Visual Studio 2012 features at the Express level. Today, I'm happy to announce that we will add Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop to the Visual Studio 2012 family. This will bring to the Visual Studio Express family significant new capabilities that we've made available in Visual Studio 2012 for building great desktop applications."

Wow, uhm, if you think this is the *beginning* of an abusive relationship you must have been in a Microsoft induced coma for a while.

We managed to escape both Oracle and IBM. That was easy. Try escaping MS or Cisco.

I didn't say it was the beginning. I'm saying, if you find those lists that are supposed to help women recognize when they're in an abusive relationship, this action of Microsoft's would surely be in that list as one of the early indicators.
