developer tools for android suck
developing on Android means a bunch of tools around Eclipse gobbled together, command line shit and almost no documentation if you're working in C++ - since everything is for Java. Debugging is almost a myth.
The dev tools on Microsoft are *the* highlight of the platform. Visual Studio Express is not cut down when it comes to mobile. it' all the tools that work for mobile. The so called "full" version of VS is totally unnecessary. What are you going to do, database modeling? It's not like it offers only part of the language, the editor or the debugger! All of these are there in full. The Express edition for phone even supports AddIns.
If you're going to be developing for mobile with a text editor, command line tools and basically GDB for Android, I don't see how you anyone could miss anything in Visual Express, since it's AT LEAST that plus a more elegant environment that ties it all in together.

Re: How close were the pictures to be so embarrassing?
I'm assuming the picture we are seeing now has been blurred, while it wasn't before
Reminds me of the early days at the university where browsing a few pages with netscape would start swapping and eventually cause a kernel panic on the Sun or Sgi machines. So much for unix's superior design!
Stop asking how to download a browser!!
Would you boneheads stop asking how to download the browser if you don't already IE installed!!??
The browsers will be pre-installed by the OEM, just like you DVD codec and your anti-virus trials.
It just won't be part of Windows, and therefore forced by microsoft onto the OEM.
Also, Microsoft has said that there will be a separate free CD ROM at the stores to install IE.

Slamming Raymond Chen is wrong
Raymond Chen is a programmer at Microsoft that posts out of his own good will, sharing his knowledge and experience working in Windows.
He IS NOT a diplomat, he is a programmer just like us and he speaks like the person in the next cubicle. It is a personal blog and the benefits far outweigh the occasional 'hurt feelings' you might get, and frankly, that's all that this pseudo-article is about - you don't really care about LockWindowsUpdate.
There is nothing that positive that can come out of glorified flames like this article except turning off good people like Raymond out of posting and providing helpful hint.
People like us learned Windows programming from Charlez Petzold, we know what WM_SETREDRAW is for, and we work with samples and not just by finding random functions in the MSDN index and guessing what they're for.
The samples for windows programming are in the Plateform SDK, they are not in the pages of the documentation of the API. It looks like you feel stupid and angry because you used LockWindowsUpdate in the past the wrong way... that's you, it's not a global problem. If you don't know what a 'tracking rectangle' is you probably have never made any effort to learn programming Windows and read the doc.
When you come off your little anger about the word 'lazy', lookup the QuicktimeAPI, OS X, man pages, etc, and you'll pretty much never find a complete discussion you are calling out of here. One page of reference documentation can't make a you a learn how everything fits together.
The only thing you're working up here is not better documentation, but rather cutting off the bridges of discussion as people become too afraid to be humiliated in public to talk.
Perhaps you'd just prefer everyone just shuts up and only read press releases and official statements.
