"Use our stuff−now it's more like not using our stuff!"

November 04, 2020 — Allen

More and more of Microsoft's products seem to be migrating towards the "non-Microsoft" way of doing things, aka the way everyone else already does it. (and, arguably, that's been their business model from the start) Bash in Windows. Git in TFS. It's a pretty strong indictment when you have to make your product be more explicitly similar to other products, presumably, from sheer user demand. It says that your way was wrong when your pitch becomes "use our stuff because it's not like our stuff anymore".
