Interesting Analysis of the State of Microsoft’s Software Development Tools

The Register published an interesting article on the state of Microsoft’s software development tools today – it focuses on tools for developing desktop apps. Although well written, the article doesn’t make up-beat reading and is in fact quite depressing. WPF and related development tools have been let languish for so long now it is hard […]
