Fear and Loathing…

In case some of you have noticed recently there was an article on zdnet (not my favorite publication anyways) that quoted James Gosling, Sun’s CTO, stating that “Microsoft’s decision to support C and C++ in the common language runtime in .Net one of the “biggest and most offensive mistakes that they could have made”“.


I figured that I would share what has to be the best reponse to this statement by pointing people to Don Box’s reply on his blog.


Now, don’t get me wrong, I am all for people raising the alarm when we have a security problem, but to make generalized and unfounded comments like this when we have so much in the area of security to worry about is just a waste of our time.
