There are entire sentences in there that convey no useful information at all. There are paragraphs that say something you could say in two to three WORDS. That sort of verbosity makes myself and others extremely suspicious because, underneath it all, I get the impression that he's not trying to say what he wants you to *think* he's saying.
I completely agree. Ozzie is smart enough to say what he means, so the fact that he rambled and prevaricated means he wanted to disguise what he really thinks. I don't code for Windows anymore, but I still read Raymond Chen's blog, The Old New Thing, where he documents why certain design decisions were made as well as what he calls "microspeak" (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/oldnewthing/archive/tags/microspeak/), which is a buzzword-lingo used internally at Microsoft. Perhaps some of the microspeak examples he documents are useful new terms, but a lot of them seem like euphemisms to me.
It confirms my own internal prejudice, though... companies with cultures where talking like that is acceptable have zero morals, screw people over quite often and are extraordinarily elitest. They also usually waste millions producing sub-standard products.
I agree with this too. If you can't speak honestly, there's a reason for it and it can't be good.
