Joel 's Problem : LUSENET : Joel on Software : One Thread

I think Joel your article highlighting on .NET is just a reflection of your anger.I think deep down inside you have been hurt my Microsoft Thats the reason you are playing a two year old child getting back. I personally feel .NET is a good concept. You guys can never be constructive. For a change learn to be positive and try to look at life an profession from a clean mind.

Stupidity is definitelly not karma. You will be owned by Ms if you trust Ms.

I have a hard time getting a read on Joel's exact attitude toward Microsoft. Few people would complain about Microsoft going bonkers one day, and then complain about Netscape going bonkers on another. As best as I can tell, according to Joel, Microsoft's got world-class software management, and bush-league marketing. He would probably know better than I. He's worked there. I haven't.

On that note, blind trust of MS will get you owned, but blind hate of MS will get you sidelined. And stupidity will get you killed. I could say here, "so just be smart," but it's not that easy, and that's pretty much the whole point.

What i feel abt Microsoft is "Love the Products But Hate the Company"

Funny thing is, I worked with some guys who'd been drinking the Microsoft juice for many years, and were buzzing with .NET (the company must embrace .NET! It's here now!); I showed them Joel's piece (it's not here yet, and won't be for a year or two!).

Their response was much the same as the post here - an assault on the messenger. Made all the funnier by the fact that Joel is proud of and happy about his time at Microsoft - a typical anti-Microsoft zealot.

And a year later, .NET is just starting to become viable in a real- world (rather than demoware) sense. And it's not that revolutionary. Kind like Joel said...

I think Microsoft comes up with great products, followed by great marketing. They also charge they earth , sky and everything in between for the product.

They have too much money for anyone to disregard. Hence .NET will be popular and will be there for a while. Microsoft knows where it is going with its web services, unlike Sun who aren't quite sure.

Hence there will be no J2EE after a while though I think Java is a great thing, alas! I have to get REAL.
