or plan to spread Lua usage?
Microsoft hired a number of staff from rapid-application development
specialist Borland Software. Among these was former Turbo Pascal and
Delphi leader Anders Hejlsberg who went on to birth C# - one of
Microsoft's fastest growing languages.
Very rapidly followed by howls of protest (much of which came from the
MVPs) from the VC++ community about the incredibly poor UI in Visual
Studio 7.0. They quickly released 7.1 to address some of the
shortcomings and not until 8.0 did Visual Studio get back to where it
had been with Visual Studio 6.0 (for C++ developers at least and its
still minus its MFC tools). For a lot of people the hiring of the Delphi
design team was a backward step for Visual Studio.
I think these puff pieces in the press really put a lot of emphasis on
not too much substance. I really doubt that Adobe is hurting over losing
this gentleman, no matter how talented he is.
Who can say how they plan to script any of this stuff? MS have so many
different technologies available to them, in house and externally, for
scripting, I'd guess it'd be a marketing/politics call as to what they
end up going with.
