IMHO your colleague has actually rather gotten a bad impression of Microsoft

Eric Miller's quick diagnosis of the cause of the problem is a wonderful
example of what Eric Raymond dubbed Linus' law: "`Given enough eyeballs,
all bugs are shallow". Another confirmation of the superiority of the open
development method ("bazaar style" for proj vs. "cathedral style" for
compilers, to follow Eric Raymond's terminology).

Excellent work, Eric Miller!
