Where to start. Not sure where discussion went sideways on Sharepoint. Sharepoint is written in managed code as is asp.net and many others. There are also many silverlight web parts for sharepoint. Sharepoint is composed of parts, so some can be html, and others silverlight where it makes sense. Also, the fact that .net was not in longhorn has no reflection on sl or .net as a platforms. It is a different issue completely that has OS dependency issues unrelated to .net as a platform. Steve is correct, it is all about developers, and sl is a nice developer platform already and getting much better with 4.0. So the future looks good imo.
Also, what is this crud about a ms tax for CE and so Open must be better. What they are really saying is free is somehow better just because it is free, users don’t care about “open” at all. When did we get a point where paying for sw is bad? So it is ok for google to make money on ads and apple to make money on iphone, but if ms charges for an os, now that is a tax? I don’t get the dual standard but this is another post. Sure, if a piece of HW leaves China at $60, a $40 OS is a big deal to be sure. But that is a pricing issue. MS can fix that. Quantity pricing also fixes that. There is still a cost to free sw. Bad IDEs, longer development, spotty or no support, dropped projects, etc,
Second, Droid has issues. I just looked for a new phone yesterday and wanted the Driod. The guy talked me out of it, because of many issues and speed issues. I got a Blackberry storm and its great. Loving andriod because it is not microsoft is not mature thinking.
