Joel on Software - How Microsoft Lost the API War

Joel on Software - How Microsoft Lost the API War

What a great blog article!

This article really puts together a lot of good information about the future of computing. It brings up a good comparison between web applications and rich clients.

I'm hoping that Linux will be able to fill in for Microsoft in the rich client market. The problems that Joel Spolsky wrote about sound too much like the problems developers have with KDE and Gnome. Maybe an article like this will help bring the Linux camp around to a common API.
