The guys at MS are professional engineers--they may have different philosophies or coding styles or project priorities than you do, but they're not slowing things down in order to make you buy the next product.

That's right--they're professionals who are coding what they get told to code.

And you might not like MS, but they haven't been a disreputable company for decades.

I must have missed that. My Bing-fu is a bit weak at the moment--perhaps you can post a link to a news article or something showing me when they started being reputable?

Thanks for the links, they make interesting reading.
