From Ross at Methods in Excel, in “Microsoft, you just don’t get office developers don’t you?”
I don’t know what’s more disturbing, the insulting tone, or the fact that They Don’t Get It. I haven’t moved to dot-net because in four years I’ve had exactly two potential clients ask me to develop something in VSTO. There’s no client pull. The push from my end isn’t very strong either, given the versioning and deployment issues.
Wait until Simon sees this.
