Microsoft Microsoft has just responded to Google's move regarding Exchange ActiveSync. Sadly, instead of addressing the very real problems consumers are about to face, Microsoft starts talking about switching to Outlook.com.

This is like every argument on OSNEWS it gets into name calling and I am out.

The fact of the matter is I try to do it right in the first place, so I don't have a maintenance nightmare on my hands in the future.

Calling me names and saying I have garbled logic because you are some old guard web developer (and I have met guys like you) is a load of bollox.

I more than enough explained my stance on the subject.

Have you never thought that perhaps you're the one in the wrong?

Given I've written web browsers and worked for large international sites with traffic that peaks in the Gbs. I have some idea what I'm talking about ;)

Plus, unlike you, I've developed sites nearly since the conception of the web and have managed to keep up to date with the latest technologies as well. But if keeping up with technology and wanting to push the best of browsers makes me "the old guard" then perhaps you're the one with your logic screwed.

Anyway, I don't need to convince you that you're wrong, the upvotes in this thread speak volumes enough. ;)

Yes because up-votes mean everything.

I don't give a f--k how long you been doing it, famously said at the thedailywtf.com "Some people have 20 years of experience, some people have 1 years of experience 20 times."

So far you basically said "you are a fool for wanting to do things the right way and I know everything!"

I don't work at some 8 bob web-shop (I used to).
