Pragmatists vs Idealists

clinton_obama_ Joel Spolsky has an outstanding post over on his blog about the recent decision by the IE team to have IE8 default to web "standards" mode. I have very little to add to Joel's insightful and educative post, except to say that one of the most interesting dynamics about working for Microsoft (especially having previously worked for Microsoft competitors) is seeing the very real challenges that the company faces in balancing backwards compatibility with interoperability.
