I'm still reading this thread so feel free to comment on the video, the beta, the history series, or pretty much anything else you'd like me to see. I'll do my best to make sure the right people get the message too.
I can't underscore how valuable the previous feedback was in ensuring that the right problems got focus. There's nothing like saying "look I got about 100 niners telling me what a POS the addref dialog is so we can dispense with the 'is this really a problem'
part of the conversation"
Even if I already know about the problems your comments are ammunition for me so please give me the straight stuff.
I think that's the first time I've ever been accused of lacking the vitality to say no. This is a totally new experience for me.
And that comment is also lucid and gender neutral. Mind if I borrow it for my next exec meeting?
But to your point, there are few people who lament the "kilometers of code" more than I do. This isn't something you can fix overnight but there isn't any way I'm going to allow a lack of vitality on my part to slow the process down. I promise.
