That article needs a lot more explanation. If say they abandoned DX, all that does is open the door to every other competitor out there. Windows could lose a lot of it's hold.

As a commenter on the section stated, it's funny so many people use MS tools, they always expire and make you update things that don't even need updating and that cost a bundle. You go to competitive solutions, many don't have expiration. What you did 15 years ago, still going strong, no threats etc. Over time to me that wears terribly.

Sadly the company that employs me, still hasn't really figured that one out yet. We are looking at a new tool because of expiration, the old tool still does everything we need it to, and the new tool is a total rewrite of 1000's of customers scripts. This is where management needs to have been a dev and risen from the ranks, otherwise they don't get it enough. And they'll probably pick another MS product with a shelf life, so we do this again in 2020. When you mention this to them "MS is the standard, they dominate..." yeah and it's costing us millions because you don't investigate beyond coffee table reading as you sit in a receptionist area.
