Please also look on the TDD for some good points. I think that Microsoft only wants to sell its software, that's why:
a. "we know better"
b. "our tools are better than other open-source tools"
c. "you cannot live without our tools"
d. "Buy our software !!!"
Finally Jeremy made a really, really, good point: don't be a sheep, think for yourself
A.) We need to diversify our sources of knowledgeps. Also Scott Bellware here
B.) We need to question any and all advice from Microsoft (or anyone else) and think for ourselves
C.) We need to have an active conversation with ourselves on best practices
