I have posted it again because I like the rant a lot and want to share
it as much as possible.  I did this as a reply to your email because you
are producing the same kind of (IMO) monstrosity that they make fun of
in the podcast: shipping a development environment as a humongous
virtual machine image.

I know that our virtual machine image is just one of the alternatives,
and not the main way to install and run our development environment, but
still, I found the similarity between it and what Microsoft has done to
be striking.

Hmm, which comment?  I said here that it is "even kinda relevant".
"kinda" is short for "kind of" and roughly means here "it is not
entirely irrelevant".
