comment Why is it so hard to find anything on MS site?
@Amir well thats what the product list is, isn't it? Each product will have tons of downloads so instead you go to the product page first and then you see a list of downloads there.

+1 for MSDN is difficult to organize, have you seen google documentation, the Picasa API docs a few months ago was for v1.6 Google Data Lib but the latest version of the lib was 1.7 released weeks ago.

comment How do programmers in the West see programmers in the East?
@Mike glad you saw it, yes, this question (or atleast my answer) maybe be applied in general terms to most industries and India is the way it is because of poverty here and the population, which just makes the standard of like plain terrible, which then leads to things like @Scant Roger talks about, I made my point because I'm scared of ignorant hatred.

comment How important is Domain knowledge vs. Technical knowledge?
+1 @Sri Kumar true, but I think being a programming, you should still be able to figure out what it is they need and how you would use technology to bring about a solution. I agree, writing business solutions means coming across all kinds of businesses.

comment How do programmers in the West see programmers in the East?
@apoorv true. when I used to teach earlier (At "renowned" Indian institute I won't mention), they used turbo C there too, I used to use netbeans to teach (which was already installed) but they forced me to go back to TC! Eventually 4-5 students went up to him and told him they liked it for the first time, because they actually could write a program that would work!

comment How do programmers in the West see programmers in the East?
@pekka @jonescb Ironically I myself will not get into a degree course in CS, (I might have to settle for a math degree) because there are so many who will apply with far better scores and my skill will be accounted for nothing! Its more than just what people/parents say.. you cannot survive in india without a degree, what mac-donalds pays you monthly will probably cover 20-50% of your rent. So then we have a few million doing some degree or another and the whole system turns into a mess.

comment How do programmers in the West see programmers in the East?
@pekka yea population is the killer bit, ironically, my own parents/relatives think I'm not good enough with a degree, infact, I am not, because with the number of people the stakes are higher, also, the way most jobs pay (seriously low) people will do whatever they need to get a better paying one, or move. Plus you have no idea how drone-like it is to have a million people striving like robots for the same thing you want.

comment Is there a Windows philosophy of programming?
@Tom I agree with @Allon more because to me it seems like the OP's question is more Console vs GUI programming.

comment Should newbies use IDE autocomplete (Intellisense)?
JIT? Don't you mean the .NET FCL? =) Yep I agree...Over the years intellisense has proven a learning tool for me, I've learnt about tons of newer classes, methods and properties with it.
