Re: Miguel de Icaza set to embrace .NET

but dont you guys think that weather microsoft
re-invents concepts or not .. if you cant market your
product well you will never be able to reach youselves
to the masses even if your product is first class and
beats microsoft outright.

So i guess if the concept of mouse was  invented by
macintosh they couldnt market it but on the contarary
i think everyone of us knows 'mouse' thru microsoft

Please dont start a flame war as to 'we have a
microsoft lover on our list' coz i dont have any hang
ups with microsoft nor the open source free software
world.i just wanted to make a point that the linux
guys have lacked the art of marketing of which
microsoft has proven itself a pioneer.

-- Thanks.
