The Gartner gang may see great things on the horizon with Microsoft's upcoming Indigo platform, but a "show-me" attitude reigns in the IT trenches. ComputerWorld's Heather Havenstein took the pulse of users at Microsoft's VSLive conference in San Francisco, and found plenty of healthy skepticism.
- "Looks nice on paper, but I will have to see itin action."
- Indigo's placewithin .Net still lacks clarity: "I don't know how it fits in or ifit will even change our code."
- "We're trying to develop Web services on an IBM mainframe, and ithas been very painful trying to tie together all that information."
- Web services haven't been stabilized yet, and we would like towait a little bit if we have to change what we have now to Indigo."
