I was pointed to this by a friend on the GAGG boards (Geneseo Area Gaming Group). Apparently Microsoft feels that there development tools aren’t exciting enough, so they’ve created their own set of super heroes.
Personally I don’t think the answer to there problems is adding more flash. I’ve done development with Microsoft tools on several occasions. Yes, a lot of their tools do integrate well together but, there is just something about the .net framework that makes me want to throw my computer down the stairs.
