Microsoft Azure Outage Across the Globe

terjeber Re:This is nothing new for Microsoft (167 comments)

Yeah, that's why Apple chose them as their iCloud provider. Are you always this retarded or only when Linus blows you?

Microsoft Azure Outage Across the Globe

terjeber Re:Yawn ... (167 comments)

Sure, but when you have outages and stability issues which impact your business, is it really a good trade off?

Yeah, and in-house stuff never fails, right? Honestly, I am willing to bet that for the vast majority of corporations out there, their own infrastructure is nowhere near as reliable as the cloud infrastructure from any of the main suppliers. The main reason they would not be able to reach the cloud would be that some dimwit had re-configured a router somewhere again (which would also have knocked out any in-house stuff).

What Would Have Happened If Philae Were Nuclear Powered?

Yes, there is no way a thin piece of paper would shield against such radiation, you'd need a thick piece of paper.

Linux Foundation Comments On Microsoft's Increasing Love of Linux

terjeber Re:Microsoft's 1990's business plan. (162 comments)

Also, again, read it in context. The reply with the silly 100% was in reply to someone pointing out that in the non-Windows/Office space, Microsoft has to, and is, competing on merits. In other words, context.

Yeah. Right. That's what was meant. Sure. Office profits are astonishingly unforeseen. Every single year. Comes as a shock to both Microsoft and everybody else.

On the other hand, I am seriously amazed that you have mind-reading capabilities like that. You can know what someone else meant without even meeting them. I'm impressed. Good for you.

terjeber Re:Microsoft's 1990's business plan. (162 comments)

No, the statement was that profits are strongly tied to Office and Windows

Here is the quote I responded to (my emphasis):

Microsoft still makes 100% of its vast windfall profits from leveraging its monopoly

When I said that this statement was erroneous, you corrected me, with:

So how then are the profits not strongly tied to their monopolies in Windows (Desktop) and Office (Desktop Productivity)?

Now, if you were not intending to answer in the appropriate context, why did you answer in this context? You are absolutely correct that Microsoft profits are tied to Office and Windows, but again, context matters.

Debunking a Viral Internet Post About Breastfeeding Racism

terjeber Re:Most people don't object to public breast feedi (350 comments)

Breasts are most definitely not intrinsically sexual!

To quote good old Oscar: "Everything in the world is about sex, except sex. Sex is about power.". So, in that Wilde sense you are wrong. On the other hand, that would make falling leaves about sex too, and I am not sure there are a lot of people who thinks so. Other than in the bible-belt of the US of course. In that area everything is indeed about sex, even sex. Perhaps we should nuke the whole damned thing, from New Mexico to Florida in a wide belt. We could leave Austin of course, Austin is just weirdly normal.

Visual Studio 2015 Supports CLANG and Android (Emulator Included)

terjeber Re:One word: Silverlight (192 comments)

Microsoft announces the end of life of a lot of stuff all the time. Various Windows versions, for example. This doesn't mean the end of life of the technology, though SL5 hasn't seen a lot of talk lately. If (and that is a big if) there is a SL6, it will also have and EOL, some time in the decade after SL5.

Linux Foundation Comments On Microsoft's Increasing Love of Linux

terjeber Re:Microsoft's 1990's business plan. (162 comments)

In the latest report, Microsoft revenue in the non-office, non-windows categories, was about 8% commercial other, 8% consumer other and 14% consumer hardware. None of these are tied to the Microsoft stranglehold on the desktop. They include Azure, XBox, services, enterprise software (for example the Dynamics product line) etc. 30% of revenue is unrelated.

For your statement to be correct, together these sectors together must either break even or operate at a loss. I'd love to see your argument for that. 70% is not 100%.

The same as always? They get people hooked on their platform and then extort them

That doesn't really answer anything. It's only a "because they can". Could you explain a theoretical way they could do it? Please be specific.

They will hook them with fake-ass open source

If that's all you have then my original description of your intelligence was not a personal attack but an accurate description of reality. Again, please explain to those of us who actually think every now and then, what is fake about the Apache or MIT software licenses. Please be specific. No ranting or moronic statements like the one above. Facts please.

Microsoft To Open Source .NET and Take It Cross-Platform

terjeber Re:Real cross-platform is HARD (525 comments)

Platform specific issues are covered in .Net, someone mentioned Path.Combine( one, two, three... ninetynine) as an example. Things like temporary directory locations, home directory locations etc also. Now, you never know if the actual developer uses these, but if they don't, and they test on their target platform, they'll find out quickly.

The same problem pertains to Java, and most Java developers still develop on Windows.

Microsoft To Open Source .NET and Take It Cross-Platform

terjeber Re:RIP Java! (525 comments)

they need to write a back-end and port the runtime components

Given that they have had ARM in Windows Phones for a few years already, I think we can assume they already did. Also, if you read the info provided, VS 2015 can be used for writing C++ apps for Android devices. so I think they are well covered already.

Microsoft To Open Source .NET and Take It Cross-Platform

terjeber Re:RIP Java! (525 comments)

From what I can tell "cross platform" to MS seems to be x86 only

Your name is fitting. Your statement is based on an ignorance that is not only deep, but stems from a retarded mind. Most people know that Microsoft has a mobile platform (that isn't doing too well, to put it mildly) and there isn't really an x86 platform for mobile phones as of now (not really, it's even less successful than Microsoft's mobile OS). So, assuming MS does only x86 requires you turn off your brains first.

Also, instead of just opining nonsense, why not just check out the information provided. You can use Visual Studio 2015 to build native C++ apps for Android. In fact, even the preview of VS 2015 blows the doors, roof and walls off any other development environment for Android out there. For C++ or Cordova apps (not for Java apps to my knowledge).

We are used to Microsoft fucking things up, and we are afraid of things being the same

As he said, you need to peek out of the basement of your moms once a decade or so to see what is going on. Seriously. Sitting in the dark masturbating to Penguin images destroys your brain.

Please explain the theoretical way Microsoft could EEE in any of what they are doing now. When 2015 is released (you can try it your self right now) and given away for free (not a crippled version, the same that is the Pro version now) it will be, by a rather significant margin, the best tool for developing native (in C++) or Cordova based apps for Android. How can that, even theoretically, destroy Android?

Oh, and if you don't believe me, download VS 2015 preview and try. It is heads, shoulders, torso and thighs above the horrible bloat available today, and it's only a preview.

terjeber Re:Microsoft's 1990's business plan. (162 comments)

Chances are that it is

Well, the reality shows it is not. Microsoft wants to compete, but it doesn't, and at its current path - can't, use the old ideas of the Microsoft of the '90s.

Anyone who thinks that MS of 2010 and on is the same as the MS of th 1990s, have been sitting in their mothers basement masturbating to Penguin images for the past decade or so.

Microsoft just released a preview of the very best tools for developing native (as in C++) or Cordova based apps for Android. Seriously. None of the bloatware from Google comes close. The emulator alone is fantastic, and amazingly, you can replace the monstrosity that Google has created with the fast and excellent Microsoft version while still (for masochists) using the Google tools. What is their embrace, extend, extinguish path? Are they going to destroy Android in some way?

Wrongo, Microsoft still makes 100% of its vast windfall profits from leveraging its monopoly

This is probably one of the dumbest things written on the entire set of connected tubes that is the Internet of 2014. Your ignorance is only topped by your arrogance, but then again, arrogance and ignorance typically go hand in hand.

Example: The Apple iCloud foundation is built to a high degree on Azure. Do you think MS makes zero $$$ on Azure? How is Azure in any way tied to the Microsoft monopoly on the desktop? According to the latest earnings call, the Cloud (Microsoft doesn't break out Azure alone) contributed about $4.4B to Microsoft revenue. Please explain how that relates to a desktop monopoly. Azure revenue grew by close to 150% from 2013 to 2014, and at its current speed, Microsoft revenue on Azure will surpass Amazon some time late this year or early next.

Remember, it is always better to sit quietly in the corner having everybody think you're an idiot than posting some retarded nonsense online and removing any residual doubt.
