@wkempf: I like to think that I am laid back in general, but Microsoft are standing at the edge of a precipice with gale force winds behind them, thinking the gales will go away, and burying their heads between their legs will see them forced off that precipice.

As someone that has invested in .NET in general, up to and including WPF, I will change to Apple or Java, depending on what transpires. I am not afraid of learning something new, but it seems a waste of time investing in a company that keeps rewriting and reinventing the wheel.

There is not a hope in hell that I will continue to be a .NET developer should this hyperbole turn out to be prescience. Not a hope in hell!
