Another Believer: “Microsoft Does Listen”

Thanks to Rob Caron, who forwarded this to me.

In a post from Tom Arnold, PM and ninja for VSTS Test, he says in response to my post that the stuff I didn’t like about the testing stuff will be fixed in beta 2. Rock on. That’s good news. In particular I hope that they deal with the clickable trace output. That would be sweet.

See, Microsoft does listen. For all the crap MS catches about being arrogant or monopolistic or whatever, I tend to think they’re humble and want to build products that customers actually want. I’ve read nonsense about how all this tool integration is designed to give the company a “stranglehold” on the market and lock people in or something like that, and I find that outright stupid. Put aside the fact that Microsoft is not a charity, but it behooves them to build stuff people want. How crazy is that?

  1. Fix the VB upgrade wizard, so that it actually converts something beyond "Hello world."

    You’ll convince me if the thing actually does something useful this go round.

    Beleivers are found in religions.

    MS isn’t a religion. Yet.

    Shows how different people interpit language. I’ve never really put the religious connotations too far into the words "Believer" or "beliefs". For example: I’m a believer that VS 2005 will ship in 2005.
