James Whittaker wrote a very important thing about his image of MS attitude to the Security. A quote from there: "The SDL works because a cultural change has happened at Microsoft. Innovation, security, customer experience are all so tightly intertwined that we don’t think about them as separate entities. We don’t do the SDL because we have to; we do it because we do it. Word is getting around, the cultural change is spreading. The clipboards have been thrown out and the natural resistance to change has morphed into a development culture centered around a secure customer experience."
I believe the shifts were caused by the whole community so let's be regarded as a merit! :)
I expect the changes will happen not only within MS but there and everywhere!!
