Glasnost at MSFT

, Jul 16, 2004

I’m not deep into .NET, but I find the fact that Dare Obasanjo openly asks for what XML features .NET users would like to see in Orcas/Longhorn (the version of Visual Studio after Whidbey), and Don Box’s response , which seems to really be totally un-political, extremely impressive. At least some folks at Microsoft really seem to be taking this new openness thing seriously.
