I don't think anyone working on this project has ever worked in the real world. Let's say I own a court management system software company. I have feature 'X' that I have released out to my customers. Feature 'X' is actually a decent product and a clear gateway for selling other products my company sells.
Now, without warning and clear justification I rip the product out and let my User's stumble on to the problem. Of course, I haven't notified my support staff and have not prepared documentation for working around the problem (just to add salt to the wound I will have one of my pompous dev managers throw around words like virtualization and container.)
Then, when cornered, I blurt out "It will be added back in ..." wait a year and then blurt out "it won't be added in." Only a truly blind monopoly could get away with such actions. Microsoft, your arrogance and lack of professionalism in this matter is astonishing. You should lead us forward not into the gutter.
