.NET Is Like Learning To Make Asbestos

I couldn’t resist posting this quote from PeopleSoft CEO Craig Conway:

Today's biggest dependency is on the Microsoft operating system, and Microsoft most understandably is determined to continue that dependency. Their response to the push toward Internet applications is .NET. This is a strategy to convince you that if you use Microsoft development tools, Microsoft operating systems, Microsoft databases, you can continue to run enterprise software on PCs. Why is this a good thing? It's a bad thing. It causes problems It's like asbestos. .NET is like learning to make asbestos.

This is by far one of the most entertaining quotes I’ve read about .NET.
