Mike Drip is getting slammed over his SharePoint slam article

Saturday, July 9, 2005 12:33 PM

Funny everyone in the community, least everyone I read that’s responded, has slammed Mike’s article on what SharePoint is lacking, as well as his frustrations.  The first one I saw was Paul’s response, which prompted me to comment on it (both on his post and my blog).

Then Bil piped up… with a good rebuttal.

Now I see Arpan who’s on the portal team in Redmond, post a good critique of the article.  His reaction to reading the “mishmash of technologies” point (where he said he almost laughed out loud) was similar to mine. 

I was thinking about it more this morning… show me a product that uses one technology.  The goal isn’t to use one or as many as possible in a product/project, but to use anything that will improve the performance, achieve the requirements, and meet the needs of the product/project.  And VS.NET, C#/VB.NET, ASP.NET, CSS, HTML, and XML are a “mishmash”???  I’m still chuckling. 

Hey Mike!  How’s the pure ASP.NET project going?  What?  You’re adding CSS?  Damn, that’s going to be one complicated thing to maintain!!!  You’re calling a web service too?  Wow… YOU DA MAN!
