Re: Veteran developer ditches Microsoft for open source

Ever heard of IBM, Sun, Red Hat, we could go on and on. There are more companies involved in open source than in Microsoft development by a long shot. Just look for an Internet service provider that is Microsoft only. I quit Microsoft development nine years ago. I've been paid to write a few little apps for Microsoft desktops, but the server side has been on open source servers. Microsoft won't go away, but any programmer who thinks they are the only thing is seriously limiting themselves.
