It is sad. I don't know how else to say it. I only hope the management of the IE tema will wake up and start to engage with customers. That doesn't mean going Open Source. It does mean having an ongoing conversation. A conersation that
has ceased since IE7 was released nearly a year ago.
well I have to say that I see some common signs of what I think are the same illness all over MSFT.
too many different directions.
too many different projects.
too many captains.
no real clear "General" , no single clear "long term plan"
plenty of good ideas, good projects ....
but like a large band / orchestra with out a conductor you tend to get noise not music.
I hope I am wrong and that MSFT gets it together ...
look at some of the posts here about the C9 Team and C9 V 4
other projects, trying to make some super software for 4-5 sites.
two ways to fix that:
a) focus on one site and get it done.
b) expand the team.
