It is, after all, just a tool

Matt Flynn has some interesting thoughts on the Virtual Directory vs Meta-Directory debate:

I love virtual directory technology as much as the next guy (Hi Mark), but claiming that any technology is superior to another without a discussion of the specific requirements being met just doesn’t seem to make sense. Companies, departments, and projects within departments have different needs.

I’ve said it before. They’re just tools. So, when James McGovern asks what the role of virtual directory should be, I don’t have an answer. There is no should in this discussion. Ian Yip had a similar pragmatic answer. And Nishant echoed with “the mantra should always be to choose the right tool that solves your problems”. Exactly.

Yes, exactly. This should be about choosing the right tool for the job, not debating philosophies.
