Do you plan to make hay of it? Its easy to make hay out of it. For customers who say theyre going to do .Net, we just ask them, "What are you going to do? Whats the application? What problem are you trying to solve? Youre not trying to be .Net. Microsofts trying to be .Net; youre trying to be a bank." Then you remind them that Microsofts still delivering the pieces, they have provided all the functions, youre still in a hybrid environment, you want to build anything to any scale on the server and communicate with any servers you use the old COM services and the old tool set. You have to mix these things back and forth, and you look at the road map and see that its not complete. Its not a hard play; they kind of set it up for us. They throw you a softball, and you hit back at them.
Well, many say the same can be said for WebSpherethat its a complex brand made up of hundreds of disparate products.
