It's one thing if a customer, particularly one who's technical expertise is limited, asks you a question. It's another thing if you present the question as a matter-of-fact lead-in to a story on an official MS blog.
I'm not sure how you intented the statement to read, but it comes accross as "MS is going to replace the web. Is Avalon the technology we're going to use to do it?"
I'm not a MS basher but neither am I an MS fan. Computers and operating systems are tools. I don't get emotionally involved with tools. Windows has strengths and weaknesses. So do other operating systems. But MS as a company all to often comes across as if they rule the world. MS doesn't own the web, they don't control the web and they certainly don't have it in their power to replace it. If the statement was meant tongue in cheek, then quotes or some other method of indicating that might have taken the eglomania out of it.
What would I like to ask you? I understand that Longhorn is supposed to address the weaknesses of Window's command line. Will it add real links to the file system?
