Does Anyone Listen to Peter Coffee?,1895,1894601,00.asp


I read most of this eWeek article the other day and think that Peter Coffee is way too biased.  Just look at one of his comments:


  • Visual Studio 2005 won't be bought by developers seeking cost-effectiveness, but by those who've made a strategic decision to stay on the Windows bandwagon.

Then let’s throw in some of the biased, suggestive words that he uses regarding Microsoft’s development platform:

Enlisting developers, agenda, “join a movement instead of writing an application”. 


How about he throw in a comparison of tools against the competitors in regard to feature and price.  What about the free Visual Studio Express versions for a year?


The SQL Server 2005 article a few pages over by Michael Caton is much better.
