Steven Trefethen has very good blogpost about the endless stream of new technologies coming from Redmond.
Will there ever be some sort of stabilization period where apps can mature and the technology settles into a known state where developers are comfortable about the foundation from which their working?
It definitly is very difficult to keep up with all the new stuff, before knowing the 'old' stuff entirely.
