The post describes the frustrations experienced by an architect while using the Microsoft development platform. With the new Metro based development platform, and the fall of Silverlight, there are a few more reasons why a developer in the Microsoft community has to worry.

There are a lot of products, tools, frameworks available in the Microsoft .Net platform. The choice of tool depends more on the requirements and the technical constraints of the environment. Regarding Silverlight, nobody predicted that HTML5, smartphones, tablets will become so popular. Web plugins including Flash do not work in mobile OS, especially iOS.

In the last few years, I have been impressed by good developments in the ASP.NET world - especially MVC, NuGet, jQuery etc. The announcements regarding these products have been accurate and well received within the developer community.
