Another Microsoft "Next Big Thing" technology bites the dust

This time it's LightSwitch.  Two months ago it was RemoteApp.  It must really give .Net developers a lot of second thoughts when the next "big thing" is announced.

I just find this ironic

Remember Steve Job's "Thoughts on Flash"?  Remember the closing statement?
"Perhaps Adobe should focus more on creating great HTML5 tools for the future, and less on criticizing Apple for leaving the past behind."
This just in.  A company called Nexedi is suing Apple.  For what?
"The primary reason for starting this lawsuit is because we hope that it will help Apple to sooner support the latest Web and HTML5 standards on its iOS platform - the operating system used by all iPhones.  Anyone running html5test ( on his iPhone will find out that current iOS support of HTML5 Web technologies is lagging behind other platforms."
