Andrew Flick's Blog The Ramblings of a Infragistics Product Manager

I recently had the pleasure of speaking at the Northern New Jersey .Net User Group (N3UG) and while there we discussed the My Libraries.  I do think the overall idea behind them is REALLY cool, however, there are some problems...

Where exactly is all the code for the My Libraries?  What exactly was the VB team thinking there?  In the words of the famed DonXML why didn't they open the source and release them as application blocks???  That way we would have the source code and be able to utilize them and extend them as we saw fit...not just call some method.  In other words, truely make them our own.

However, for what ever reason they were not released this way...meaning they truely aren't My libraries.  Well if they aren't mine...who's are they?  Jeff Julian, the Prophet behind Geeks with Blogs, knows exactly who owns them.  He has proclaimed the “My Libraries are the Devil.” 

A special thanks to the anonymous N3UG who helped us come upon this startling realization.  Closing with a call-out to the community...if they aren't My Libraries...what should we call them?

This is probably too easy, but how about
"Nacho" libraries....
