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.

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.
