@BitFlipper: 110% Agree!!
A little off point but, years a ago there was a saying "No one ever got fired for buying IBM/Microsoft/gold". Now a days you have to some how look at your "magic 8 ball" to before using any new Microsoft technology because you never know if/when Microsoft will discontinue and leave you up the creek (silverlight, expressions, just to beat a dead horse ). Its getting to the point where you just can't trust Microsoft any more.
