LXer: Just who is Microsoft trying to kid?

Published at LXer:

Does anybody really believe this nonsense? Let me turn it into English. Microsoft wants to earn more money from you. It intends to do this by releasing products even earlier with loads more defects because the faith it puts in methodologies like Extreme Programming (ie “Extreme” as in taking risks), and Scrum, whatever that is, is touching but entirely unsupported by any experiment. The only thing that is supported by experiment is that if you rush complex applications to the marketplace, they will be full of bugs. The only reason Microsoft lengthened its development schedules in the first place was because of the extraordinary reliability of Linux.

I completely concur. I've used Visual Studio 2005 and I can tell you that it's a piece. Good concepts/ideas but it just didn't turn out. Sounds like the big MS is getting sloppy.
