I was shocked to get an email today morning from my close buddy, now can be called as a free lancer. He informed me that he had said a life long "goodbye" to Microsoft platform for ever, since he was constantly losing more money on hosting charges and some times even had to pay from his own pocket to survive. He informed me that he shall be working with Open Source Languages now onwards, and he did not regret a bit to leave Microsoft career for ever. He was keen to survive today, rather than be remembered as an .Net developer tomorrow. He used to be a C# Genius, and have been working on big projects.
