As long as I am stirring the pot, here is an amazing comment by Steve ( no blog, apperantly :-( ) left at Chris Holmes post about my P&P post. In reference to: "Would it be acceptable for them [P&P] to build Enterprise Library using Castle Windsor?"
Interesting that the same argument against Ayende, is used by the P&P team? ie. build your own, don’t use existing capability that the .net community has created?
So, the idea is that P&P can’t use what the .net community has built and must roll their own regardless of features because it would an ‘endorsement’.
That is why it takes so long to build software, they can only use what they build, not what we build?
I have no further comment to make, except that I would like Steve's blog.
