Clarifying my Microsoft Developer Division Rant

Mike Schinkel as part of this large post asks if IronPython is ready for the prime time and Microsoft integrating IronPython with a complex IDE like Visual Studio is the bset thing for the lanaguage.

  1. Thanks for the reference. Just to clarify, my comment about IronPython was tangential for my poste and only in reply to Eric Lippert who mentioned it as addressing my concerns about Microsoft's process and release cycle compared to open-source, and also in relation to an occupational developer's needs. I am actually very interested in IronPython, but I don't think it hosted in Visual Studio is what the occupational (aka "occasional") programmer really needs, at least not at this juncture, and I don't think it's existence means that Microsoft's 3 year release cycle is now okay, which was the original purpose of my rant.
