Power Everything Please
According to this Slashdot post some senior MS Developers were maligning .Net with such macho phrases as:
Managed code is like anti-lock brakes. You used to have to be a good driver on ice or you would die. Now you don’t have to pump your brakes anymore.
attributed to Jeffrey Snover
I personally am not only in favor of anti-lock brakes, but also heated seats, to say nothing of power everything. Can’t wait for .Net 4.0!
Here’s a funny Snover (partial?) quote:
programming is getting so abstract, developers will soon have to use Natal to “write programs through interpretative dance.”
Luckily I have no idea what abstractions he’s talking about. I’m a terrible dancer.
