/This/ Eric? Really?
BTW, he also said some other nasty things.
Here's a goodie (re: Mono):
"As many of you may know, we’ve actually kind of broadened the product
portfolio of Visual Studio, targeting all the way from the low end with
students and hobbyists, kind of competitive in that Linux space, making sure
that every developer has a copy of .NET and is trained in writing .NET
solutions. We introduced the low-end version we call Visual Studio Express, so
we have Visual C# Express, Visual Basic Express, and Web Developer Express.
These products are still in their beta phases, but we actually had more than a
million downloads of Visual Studio, which is quite healthy for a developer
tool. I think it will really help us in our competition with open source."
