Quite a few years ago, I decided I would simply not invest my learning efforts into MS tech due to their acronym/framework spinning. It was a waste of my time. Of course, this limits me in some ways, but frees me to study more deeply into other areas.

It also happens with other tech areas. So I simply take the road around them unless it looks like I need to use one.

My personal work is done with Common Lisp, and I would prefer to keep it that way, by and large. It's a sufficiently extensible language that I can feel comfortable that (1) needed features will be programmed in, using CL, and (2) it will be stable for a long time.

But I guess that's a bit eccentric of me. :-)
