Subject:   XP - MSF?

Extreme programming isn't nearly as extreme as the name suggests... I've been using MSF for about 8 years now and from what I can see, the only difference is that MSF suggests teaming a tester with a developer rather than another developer (the tester should be technical enough to read code). To me, this seems far more sensible... and not nearly as costly. Mostly extreme programming seems to be more about the language the ideas are conveyed in rather than the practices used. Has anyone compared the MSF approach to Extreme?? I would suggest that projects run using MSF would be as quick to develop (and cheaper)...
