The competitive summit continues. I’m bummed that I haven’t had much time to make it over there. It’s cool that they let the attendees blog.

Here’s some of the stuff I’ve seen:

Java Lobby, report on day one (neutral on Martin Taylor on open source, liked Michael Howard on Security)

Java Lobby, report on day two (disliked Scott Guthrie of IIS and ASP.NET team, loved Rick Rashid of MS Research).

Matt Raible, day one report.

Matt Raible, day two report.

One good thing? I have two new feeds to read. Really great reports. So, now we’ve got a conversation going. Like many conversations, it’s imperfect. We won’t always see eye-to-eye (for instance, a few people suggested open sourcing Windows which we’ve decided isn’t in our best business interests so I doubt that would happen).

I learned a lot, though, about what developers on the Java and Linux side of the fence want from Microsoft. Thanks to Javalobby and Matt for taking the time to write up these notes!
