It's the difference between development and research, John. Does that mean anything to you? Development for large projects, say Windows, is a team thing and best done, according to Bill Gates, at a common site.

So no programming on Windows should be done except in Redmond?

Yet, all the programming for Linux was done worldwide using the Internet...and it's a superior product.


Research, OTOH, is an individual sort of thing and can be done in a scattered manner wherein access to support equipment and services is the significant issue rather than team interaction.

Ok, so why did they build Microsoft Research in Redmond?

Why not just distribute grants to universities 'scattered' ?


The whole OSS movement proves that the Internet is a superior management system over the Redmond Command & Control system.
