The web platform installer doesn't have HDInsight available for download. So, I checked download.microsoft.com. There was only a PDF available for download. Oh great, at least I figured that I could read about HDInsight. WRONG. It had a link to download HDInsight. So, I click on the link and what do you think it gives me? A recursive CTE (In the form of the Web Platform Installer)
I can see two issues here, and I don't expect either to be addressed here. First that the Windows store is terrible. I find it amazing how terrible it is. Sure things like this are subjective, but they are no more so than the recognition that Gerard Depardieu has a big nose.
Secondly, Visual Studio 2012 has fallen down the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down -- again, another perfectly good example of subjectivity.
Both of which are so blatantly obvious that they will likely get patched out-of-cycle. Regardless, I believe that connect is a better venue for these kind of observations.
