From the demos on the Dynamics site, this thing does everything any business manager would ever need and more. What does that leave me? Why would somone wait 2 months for me to build them an application when they could just buy one that's built by the best of the best and have it running in a day or so?
OK, so I don't really have clients yet. But that's my dream; starting a business that builds line of business applications for my clients. And my biggest selling point was gonna be that I am going to become an MCSE, an MCSD and an MCDBA. How am I going to do that when Microsoft itself has something that I couldn't do in my lifetime?
I dunno. It just makes me think I don't have a chance.
All I can say is...pringles...move onto the web instead. If you score big, Google will probably hire you (or Microsoft, Yahoo, etc.) and you'll like it even more. Or you'll fail like the many others out there trying to create startups.
All I can say is that since the time when the tools have gotten tons easier, creating startups has never been easier, and yet the competion has never been fiercer. It is not an easy time to create a startup right now...it seems.
Think long term - vision stuff. Otherwise, look for a large company to work for...
