An awfully quiet Midori front, cracked a little with the departure of Jonathan Shapiro. One of chief developers of BitC language and Coyotos OS, Shapiro joined Microsoft on Midori last April. At that time, he noted that he had decided to accept a “fairly senior position at Microsoft associated with Midori project.” In a March 9 note to BitC mailing list, Shapiro noted “As I get ready to leave Microsoft, I'm once again thinking about BitC. I want to get implementation and language definition to a point of usability, and this seems like a good time to examine some of things that I think, in hindsight, were mistakes or might warrant re-examination[…]Since I'm not formally out of Microsoft yet, I need to emphasize that I'm not engaged in this discussion on behalf of the company, that so far as I know Microsoft has no interest in BitC one way or the other. They've been gracious in allowing me to restart this set of conversations before my last day (which is March 19th).”
