Do you get the joke?

This just passed my email, and brought an ironic grin.

Not sure I get the joke, but...

Are you somehow implying that BizTalk and Agile do not go together? gasp! Or is it framework-itis again?

The name doesn't quite roll off the tongue... Microsoft ESB Guidance June 2007 Community Release, Microsoft ESB Guidance June 2007 Community Release, Microsoft ESB Guidance June 2007 Community Release.... say that three times fast. You don't feel so agile now, do you?

I also find it ironic that they feel the need to inject the word Community into an already long title. Does insisting on a community make it so? Or is it meant to imply that most releases aren't meant for "the community", but this one is? Just call it "beta" and be done with it. That's the Web 2.0 way of implying "community", although leave it to Microsoft to invent/rebrand their own euphemisms... "Shared Source", "Community Technology Preview", "Rich Interactive Applications" instead of "Rich Internet Applications", etc. At least they dropped the "Technology Preview" part.
