Been a developer for over a decade now. Am currently doing contract based work for various different clients working with MS technologies. Have my own company A Thousand Threads Ltd which specialises in developing custom solutions for small to medium sized comanies.In my spare time (when I get spare time) I enjoy training in Muay Thai Boxing and Taekwondo.
I think what alot of people complaining about are missing is the fact that most developers who are stuck within the Microsoft development stack and don't really look beyond it just open up Visual Studio and use whatever Microsoft puts in front of them.
We forget that there are many many developers out there that just want to build LOB applications the quickest and safest way possible.
Anyway I don't think this is necessary a bad thing just another way of getting things done within the MS ecosystem.

Just in case anyone's interested the Larkware site that Dave mentioned (which each day summarises interesting stuff found on the web for .NET developers) can be found here: http://www.larkware.com/ - definitely worth subscribing to their feed and checking the daily update if you're a .NET developer.
