My advice to Jamie

May 31, 2007

It seems that Microsoft is not pleased with the fact that my favorite VS add-in offers support for the VS Express SKU. You can read all about it in this post from Jamie Cansdale, the creator TestDriven.NET. My advice to Jamie:

  1. Remove support for the express editions of Visual Studio. You can't win against their army of lawyers. Let the baby have its bottle. It is simply not worth the trouble. Maybe the guys at CodeGear or SharpDevelop are interested.
  2. When you are cleaning up your code, remove the support for MS Test as well. Let's face it, your add-in is used by some many developers. Play the game and stop supporting their crap too (I'm glad that even Martin Fowler shares my opinion about MS Test).
  3. Don't let this incident affect you and keep up the good work.
