Microsoft Guy Backs Us Up

by havoc

Nice article from a Word
for Mac developer
echoing my stock reply to most Metacity feature
requests. Question: will I get more flames or less flames if I start
quoting Microsoft in bugzilla? 😉 (Of course the guy is wrong that
open source won’t do the root cause thinking, since he describes
pretty much exactly the GNOME party line over the last few years. For
that matter the first question out of almost any decent developer’s
mouth on hearing a request is “what are you really trying to do?”)
