well, since only c-carpet apps are allowed to run, you can't realy tell whats underneath...

.net as the exclusive runtime for the phone was a pretty obvious choice, actually.
Especially after they saw how Google made it work well with their Dalvik runtime, and other mobile platform developers with Java ME before that. Consumer electronics change so rapidly that you really don't want to tie yourself to a particular architecture.

The less intuitive choice was for them to have built .net in the first place instead of joining and strengthening the Java ecosystem. But that's what they had to do because their business model depended, and largely still depends, upon market domination.

c-carpet exists because of them being unable to play the  embrace and extend game with java.

so they had to come up with something on their own.

quite disturbing, really. it's these kind of sneaky-sneaky practices that makes a corporation lose face in a global market...

interesting how the astroturfing starts out as the very first comment; plus that comment reads fairly well prepared...

ho ho that's good. You have an article for that? Did MS really think google wouldn't figure that out? Don't they know googlers are smarter than they are?

Yes but notice that google didn't just take the sun jvm and run it on a phone, they wrote their own so they could make it go fast.
MS I gather never tried to do this, they took their fat bloated .net platform, cut off the pieces it didn't absolutely need on a phone like hard drive management and ran it on a handheld device.

Microsoft claims that it isn't stealing data from Google but rather capturing what IE users click on, which happens to be Google results. Ok, so they're basically admitting that they've got spyware on everyone's machines?

They're using IE7/IE8 history reports and Bing Toolbar to get their results... even if it's which google result they're clicking on.

Note: M$ claims these history and usage reports are voluntary, but they're active by default.

Of course. Leveraging "the default Windows configuration" has always been their primary way to gain market share.

Yep, and it's those exact sneaky-sneaky practices that M$ has made their standard that drove me away from them in the first place. I'm strictly an Ubuntu person (or Slax where i can get away with it) when i'm not being forced to use WinDozE (@ work mainly...)

There are several articles about it:

I should have included at least one, but I was in a hurry at the time.

Honestly, there is a part of me that is surprised by this kind of intellectual theft.

Probably not really a Microsoft problem, but what the hell...

Their latest Visual Studio was inspired by Vista, in that it seeks to help you calm down more, to relax into the programming experience by seizing itself up while its 'IntelliSense' assumes all control over the IDE.

The 'cancel' button is merely aesthetic, and was put there to make you feel better.
