i agree that its a stupid post that doesnt help at all.. someone at microsoft thought this would be the damage control that is needed ("featuring" html/js not "entirly based on" html/js)but they are obviously way off..
im guessing someone a bit closer to the devs/community figgured they had to do something, but they where still gagged by upper management terrible PR policy ("dont tell them anything, it'll make them like us more, it works for apple dont it??"). so they wrote this..
then again, it is the ie-blog so them talking about web tech is expected i guess, moronic in this context, but expected
hopefully the flames the post is getting will get someone higher up at microsoft to realise the massive c*ckup they've done and do something proper about it..
