Developers, developers, developers - is a LIE: Microsoft is
NOT paying Windows Mobile developers

,----[ Quote ]
| So imagine you have created Windows Mobile 
| apps and you have sold many of them through 
| "Windows Marketplace for Mobile", so many 
| that in fact Microsoft owes you several 
| thousand dollars. Of course considering how 
| lame Marketplace is (still many issues, still 
| many problems, still English apps not visible 
| in foreign stores, etc etc) the fact that you 
| even sold so many apps is big achievement.
| So you would think that now you can pay your 
| bills by this money that you earned off 
| Windows Mobile apps. Wrong! Microsoft is not 
| paying:
| I STILL HAVEN'T BEEN PAID ... and I have sold 
| $1000's Also 'Not eligible for revenue 
| payout' has suddenly appeared whereas when I 
| last checked mid December I was infact 
| eligible. Please can somebody competent 
| please look into this. I have bills to pay 
| and spent $1000s on submitting my apps.

| its way to becoming paid, starting October 1.



Microsoft's Open Source Faux Pas

,----[ Quote ]
| The fix to Microsoft's open source faux pas creates another problem:
| Developers were relying on Sandcastle to produce code documentation. Numerous
| responses to Ramji's blog post indicate real frustration over having the
| documentation tool summarily yanked out from under their projects.


Cisco CEO Says Microsoft Screws Its Partners Everytime...Just Like Apple.

,----[ Quote ]
| If partnering with Microsoft is not a win-win then it must be a win-loseâin 
| Microsoftâs favor of course. 


Vista beta testers face software expiration

,----[ Feed excerpt ]
| Thanks for the help - now pay up or get lost. Millions of people testing
| beta and release candidate (RC) versions of Windows Vista will find
| their test software expires on June 1 - and Microsoft is not offering
| much help on migrating their systems.
