The buzz around CodePlex
is starting to make me nauseous. I first read about it yesterday and was actually somewhat excited about it (and was even in the middle of hammering out a post saying “great idea”…then I started poking around the site and promptly deleted the draft). I’m not the only who thinks this won’t work
, and I’m sure I won’t be the last person to say that. First off, I don’t have Visual Studio Team System (though I do remember reading somewhere that MS will be releasing a free TS plug-in for non VSTS VS installations soon (wow, enough acronyms there?)), so it’s unusable for me. Second off, I just really don’t the CodePlex website. Granted it’s simpler than say…SourceForge, but it’s too simple. SourceForge is complex for a reason…having a distributed team building a project is complicated
. So I say, nothing to see here…move along. Stick with established solutions like SourceForge (love it or hate it…it just works, well most of the time).
