Poll Results : Are many .NET devs moving away from Moq after #moqgate?

I took this Twitter poll recently to gauge how many devs were thinking of moving away from Moq after the recent controversy surrounding it.

The issue is still very raw so perhaps the real numbers who migrate to a Moq alternative won’t be as high but after 924 votes over 40% have said they are moving to either NSubstitute or FakeItEasy.

Are you moving away from Moq?

I hand roll any mocks I need so this particular conversation doesn’t really affect me.

Such large numbers saying they are moving away from Moq is a shame though. It is a great product and some devs have been using it for 12 or so years without issue so consider that too. Even though it looks like the issue is resolved now, is trust gone?
