comment I have to compromise: DRY, or Command-Query-Separation?
@DanielLittle - no it's not. CQS and CQRS are distinctly different subjects. CQRS is a much more involved architectural pattern while CQS is more of design pattern and much easier to grasp and implement. See codebetter.com/gregyoung/2009/08/13/command-query-separation

comment Why does Microsoft have such a bad reputation with the people involved in open source?
@ViliamBúr - do not confuse Communism with the police state of soviet Russia or china. Communism as philosophy is very different from communism as a political party. I stand by what I said, Open source is the embodiment of communism.

comment Why does Microsoft have such a bad reputation with the people involved in open source?
@Giorgio - Biased much? A) There is quite some debate over whether or not Unix could possibly be considered a "best practice". B) When Windows was first created, Unix was proprietary (BSD didn't become open source until the 90's, and Linux was barely functional about the same time). C) Unix was mired in legal issues (see AT&T vs UCB). D) Windows is far more than just a UI. E) Things are very different today than they were back then. Your argument lacks any basis in historical events, and lacks understanding of the issues of the period.
