I see alot of the OSS proponents pulling the "oh, don't even get me started on .Net" retoric, when truly they have no clue.. It's also amazing how many developers just frankly shun any of the MSDN developer events/launches/road shows/whatever and they're the ones asking you all the questions and saying how hard this whole .net thing is and whatnot..

I'd take open knowlege (via MSDN events) over OSS anyway..

(Oh yeah, did I mention that these events are FREE and you usually GET FREE STUFF?)
