Microsoft Office and the CLR don't get along?
Mini-Microsoft is the blog of an anonymous Microsoft employee that from time to time spills his guts over how he feels about Microsoft and doesn't hold back. He is not too fond of managed code. Monday's post reveals that one of the high-ranking managers for the Office System product line is not too fond of the CLR either:
"It's interesting to see Mr. Steven Sinofsky's Technical Career Forum blog. Now, I don't know much about Mr. Sinofsky. But earlier in the year I was over in the absolute worst and poorly designed building on campus - #36, the home to just about all things Office - and the discussion about the current and previous releases of Office came up. Mostly around how Windows had screwed Office really really well over constantly slipping and cutting features that Office was trying to synchronize a release with. One thing related to me, that I have great respect for Mr. Sinofsky if true, is that Sinofsky more or less told anyone hawking a .NET CLR integration demand on Office to take that CLR and JIT it up where the sun don't shine. I have great respect for that."
So does this mean we should not have too high of an expectation for better CLR integration with Office 12?
