Agree! As another application developer I'm keenly aware that MS not only feel free to change their toolset at the whim of their developers, but they seem to have made it an essential part of their business strategy.

We have a major Windows app which is now a couple of decades old. If we'd chosen to use MS tools we would have had to substantially recode it every 3-5 years. Instead, the tool we chose still uses the original code without modification.

Sometimes the perception of competition, or rather the perception of alternatives existing, is more of a comfort blanket than a reality. This is often a fallacy as you just have to look at how many SQL features that are used in any given application that are not standards compliant i.e. it would take a serious amount of work to migrate. The further up the management tree you go the more the perception appears a reality as the more likely the individuals have read white papers or marketing fluff as opposed to SDK documentation.
