Thanks, Microsoft!

We're in the process of upgrading to Visual Studio 2010 here at work. Normally, this would make me very happy, but it turns out that Microsoft has decided that they no longer need to provide BRIEF keyboard emulation, because there just aren't enough people who care about it.

I'm not sure how they figured this out, but the one thing that seems apparent is that the people who care about it really care about it -- and that Microsoft doesn't give a damn.

The fact that Microsoft doesn't give a damn is, I suppose, no great surprise, but deciding to annoy one of the only people in the department who doesn't actively dislike them is probably stupid.
