DaveNet : Unstalling SOAP I’ve

DaveNet : Unstalling SOAP

I’ve come to see them primarily as a bully that uses its advantage at every step, whether they need to or not, to achieve their goals, and they play on peoples’ ignorance and willingness to believe that somehow they’re special, that Microsoft respects them even as they dis the others. Even in an area that’s probably of minor significance to them, they don’t ever show restraint, repeated calls for them to back off and let people work openly are ignored.


My experience now matches the stories I’ve heard from others, they must have a playbook for dealing with outsiders, and they stick to it. I don’t believe they can participate in an open development process without spoiling it.
