Oh, Richard's blog Regular Smiley. I respect Richard for the knowledge he has, but I can't agree with his opinion. What might give a sad angle to this whole debate is that Richard lost his MVP title earlier this year, totally unexpected. Some say, and I have a feeling their reasoning isn't that odd, MS has deliberately kicked him out of the program.

That MS hasn't written parts of the base OS in .NET is no way in my opinion a reflection of their support of .NET, every language/platform has its place. Personally I want everything in the OS to be as fast and as small as possible, this is not what .NET does the best.

Now if they were to rewrite calculator, notepad, and all the other collection of 'apps' in .NET I would be impressed, but honestly why invest the man hours when they have a proven codebase that has been heavily tested and debugged?

.NET is GREAT for writting business applications, from Web Services, to day to day applications, and this is where it should be used in my opinion.

Yeah, it seems a far reach to say they have "lost confidence" in it because they are not rewriting the OS in it (not sure how that would work anyway).

What's really funny is that the link to this article from the CNN site said "Micrsoft abandons .NET". Shocked

Well, MS has backtracked on this one, so I give that to Richard, he's right in that. But they did that for different reasons. Not because .NET doesn't work, but because it would take too much time to get vista done. For over a year now they're simply focussed on shipping the darn thing which took way too long due to wrong management and other misery, so everything which can slow down that process has been taken out.

This article got digged yesterday afternoon and was promptly corrected by people who actually knew what they were talking about. The whole thing is rediculous if you ask me.

Writing an OS in managed code..... soon they'll be asking to construct buildings with animal crackers...
