I have read multiple posts by Miguel in other places. If this is an
impersonator, it's a good one. The style is definitely Miguel.
Miguel thinks a lot of things Microsoft did in the software realm were
good ideas: one of his first goals was to implement a COM-like component
infrastructure on Linux.
That's an opinion, one you can agree or disagree with. Unfortunately,
Miguel gets *very* defensive when you criticize the things he likes. He
also has a big problem separating criticism of Microsoft's business
tactics from Microsoft's software development practices. Since the
latter are more or less obviously used to support the former, this is
understandable. Unfortunately it leaves Miguel sometimes in a position
that he must defend the undefendable, and he is not good at dealing with
that, from what I have seen.
