Congrats, Microsoft

Congradulations to Microsoft, who has just finished writing Vista. I think all software developers know how difficult to finish a product, and I think nobody outside of Microsoft will really know how difficult it is to finish Vista.

With Apple coming back strong in the OS department, and with Linux continuing to be on the trail, I hope that in, say, 10 years' time, I may be able to say that I am proud to be developing on Windows, just like I can already say that I am proud to be developing on Mac OS X.

(Yes, I do develop for Windows. If you will go over to my employer's web site, you may take a glimpse of one of the product that is my baby. I won't tell you which one, though, so you'll have to guess. :-) )

Microsoft's Zune Challenges iPod
