The Windows Shutdown crapfest

This is a great blog entry by someone who worked at Microsoft for years, the last few developing a “feature” for Vista. He was actually working on just the Shutdown sub-menu under the start menu but there were an amazing number of people with ties to just that little feature. I was stunned to see that the other people on outside teams had to wait sometimes months to see his changes propagate to their code tree. This really shows how big & bloated the Windows development team has become and sheds some light on why things get so f’ed up in the product.
