I just read Jeff Nolan’s post on his blog entitled “What is the deal with Salesforce.com and their Cult?” (Thanks SalesForceWatch.com)

There’s one quote in particular that I’d like to call out. In fact I think I’ll be emailing it to Marc himself later today or tomorrow: (Emphasis added)

Here’s the real problem that I see SFdC running into with their obsession with multi-tenant hosted software, it’s really their religion and just like you can’t decide it’s convenient to switch religions when the opportunity avows itself, they will not be able to offer anything other than what they are currently doing when customers ask them to.

The thing about religous zelots is, sometimes they can’t see the forest for the trees. This also dovetails nicely into my discussion about trying to be everything to everybody.
