Old-school vs New-school at MicrosoftPosted 3340 days ago on February 26, 2005
Fascinating post by Danny Thorpe, Borland's Chief Scientest, on Where's my Delphi for .NET Compact Framework. The subject is why Borland doesn't support the Compact Framework with its .NET tools; but what's more interesting is Danny's take on Microsoft's internal workings. He sees a "new school" faction which is building an open platform (.NET); and an "old-school" faction which is uninterested in third-parties. It's a mostly depressing post but with a glimmer of light at the end: Danny reckons Microsoft is leaning towards the new school.
