You don't know what you're talking about and clearly don't know what 'devops' is supposed to mean.

How 'DevOps' Is Killing the Developer

RightSaidFred99 Re:whine (225 comments)

And you should learn to read. He's saying the same thing you are - if you are a developer, devops kind of sucks.

Google Buys Drone Maker Titan Aerospace

RightSaidFred99 Nice for rural areas.. (41 comments)

But wireless is fundamentally inferior to wired, I'd much rather have fiber in metro areas in terms of home internet. Mobile internet? Hells yeah, this could do an end-run around the big carriers. If Google truly wanted to "do no evil" they'd build a kickass flying infrastructure system and then lease it out to providers to sell.

Ask Slashdot: How To Start With Linux In the Workplace?

RightSaidFred99 Re:Lol don't (451 comments)

What an asinine comment. So nobody should ever do anything new because, well, it's already been around for decades in some form or another.

Powershell is different from the UNIX shell environment. In some ways things are more difficult, in others much much easier and cleaner.

What does a neckbeard like you get out of this? Powershell isn't bash and sucks! What I get a kick out of is the plethora of bullshit UNIX shells and how they get a pass, even though they all have their own little quirks. Back when I was stuck on 70's technology, the rule was always use 'sh' for scripts, not csh/tcsh - those can be used for interactive but are poor choices for scripts.

Nowadays? Pfft, people using 'bash', 'sh', 'tcsh', it's a god damn mess. Then you have the cool kids using Python (Perl is so old school now, apparently, though it's 50X better for most routine UNIX scripting).

Don't be a tard, nobody will take you seriously.

The New 'One Microsoft' Is Finally Poised For the Future

RightSaidFred99 Re:Welcome to 2004 (270 comments)

Rich, coming from someone who probably thinks Linux and Python (the current rage in OSS development) are hot new shit.

You neckbeards crack me up. Stuck in 1993, but pointing fingers at everyone else as "Yesterday's Technology".

The New 'One Microsoft' Is Finally Poised For the Future

RightSaidFred99 Re:That's not the only thing that's gone... (270 comments)

.NET is not dead, not even close. It's the basis of the majority of software developed for any Windows platform.

Seriously, where do you people get this stuff?

The New 'One Microsoft' Is Finally Poised For the Future

RightSaidFred99 Re:doubt it (270 comments)

Nobody who knows anything is buying what you're selling. OpenStack is shit. Complete shit and will continue to be shit for at least 2 more years.

Your blathering indicates you know not what the fuck you're talking about and live in a prickly neckbeard bubble.

The New 'One Microsoft' Is Finally Poised For the Future

RightSaidFred99 Re:doubt it (270 comments)

OpenStack? Fucking please. I have to deal with that monstrosity at work. Good. Fucking. Luck. It's a piece of shit, a mishmash of half-working shit thrown together in more of a cloud "framework" you can maybe make work if you have 50 people to put on it than a "product". Mirantis (and others) have sprung up around it trying to make it something moderately less miserable to install and manage, but even the "easy mode" OpenStack is incredibly hard in a large, complex enterprise environment.

But it's definitely got momentum, I'll give you that. It's complete _shit_ compared to Azure, but Azure is also a different product - you can't (fully and well) install Azure in your own enterprise.

So to some degree they are different beasts. But if Microsoft were to focus on making Azure something you could deploy on-premises easily Openstack would be an epic fail in just about every way in comparison.

The New 'One Microsoft' Is Finally Poised For the Future

RightSaidFred99 Re:Good for devs. (270 comments)

WCF is still around because it works ridiculously well for SOAP based web services over multiple types of transports. There's nothing better.

Of course, REST is now where all the cool kids are going, but then again all the cool kids are using Web Scale MongoDB and Rubython with Djangeroo and WebFlops Celery, or whatever ridiculous mishmash of bullshit is popular now.

RightSaidFred99 Re:Good for devs. (270 comments)

WebAPI has not replaced WCF. Sure, all the cool kids think REST services are the only game in town, but it ain't so and WCF does a lot, lot, lot more than WebAPI.

Sure, they moved OData and REST to WebAPI, but that ain't the whole enchilada. Not sure why anyone using WCF would be "annoyed".

$250K Reward Offered In California Power Grid Attack

RightSaidFred99 Re:Why not more? (111 comments)

They lack imagination. Even simpler and more terrorizing would be Mumbai style attacks. 20 terrorists willing to die could cripple this country for weeks and cost us billions and billions by just murdering random people and trying to keep doing it as long as they can.

But they want big, showy, single-event terrorism.

RightSaidFred99 Re:Lol don't (451 comments)

Oh please. It takes little time for someone who knows what he's doing to get it done in Windows or Linux. Some of you people seem to think Windows consists of cmd.exe and the GUI.

That's because you are a grade A moron. It's clearly low-level "satire" (actually petty, pandering sarcasm), you dunce cap.

Google: Teach Girls Coding, Get $2,500; Teach Boys, Get $0

RightSaidFred99 Re:Girls just do not like programming as much as b (673 comments)

All nonsense.

The fact is that if you're a baller, and/or a shot caller, brawler you will do well in IT. Period. If you know multiple scripting languages, code in your spare time, and in general have a natural affinity for technology you will do well regardless of any other factors.

No amount of whining or statistical analysis will change that, if you've been in IT for any period of time you know and understand this.

Are low-level, average, barely good enough women being 'scriminated (sic) against? Maybe. But plenty of men in that low rung get the shit end of the deal too.

RightSaidFred99 Re:Equality? How about sports? (673 comments)

Lol, total bullshit. That's not sexism, that's wanting to watch the best athletes.

I'll tell you what, let's end this travesty of injustice. Combine all sports, unisex. You play sports based solely on your ability, mixed-sex.

This should solve the (lol) "sexism" problem, right? No?

RightSaidFred99 Re:clearly google wants women developers (673 comments)

You're joking, but the whole "pay gap" thing is a hilarious joke. If you're willing to work for less, I'm going to pay you less. It's simple. And just because someone else negotiates a raise doesn't mean I'm going to give you the same raise so you have "pay equity".

You are paid based on your value and your negotiating skills, the whole "equal pay" thing is yet another sign that we are going insane as a nation.
