Microsoft Cheaper To Use Than Open Source Software, UK CIO Says
Linux engineers would have no problem learning Windows stuff
Quite the opposite, I work with allot of high caliber Linux engineers , and one of the most difficult challenges is getting them to understand windows and how operate it. When they continually try to 'grep' files instead of using power-shell, 'ls', or even 'nano' a text file. They tend to flock to OSX that offers them and environment that is more like the environment they are used to.
The over all issue, repeated here is that Windows admins are cheaper than Linux admins. Any Linux admin worth their salt is not going to take the low paying desktop job that a college grad might take as a first real world job.

Slashdot Tries Something New; Audience Responds!
the beta site that houses Slashdot's future look.
So this is how it is going to be
we want you to know that Classic Slashdot isn't going away until we're confident that the new site is ready
You will have this forced upon you at some point
Some of you have suggested we're not listening; on the contrary, some of us are 'listening' pretty much full-time.
and ignoring any suggestions because we are owned by Dice, and this is how they want it
because we're a community and we want to take everyone with us.
and advertise crap to you
Why? We want to take our current content and all the stuff that matters to this community and deliver it on a site that still speaks to the interests and habits of our current audience, but that is, at the same time, more accessible and shareable by a wider audience.
and advertise crap to you
And we want a platform where we can experiment with different views of both comments and stories.
and sell your information, and advertise crap to you
It's not an either/or. It's going to be both.
So shut up and take it
If we haven't communicated that well enough, consider this post a first step to fixing that.
So Fuck You and thanks for all the Fish
Update on the March of Progress: How Slashdot's New Look Is Shaping Up
Was trying to figure why this beta site was so shitty, it because DICE bought /. and now they are trying to force the shitty DICE.COM interface on people. Slashdot / Dice people reading this, your audience is not a bunch of tweens browsing face book, its actual developers, network and system engineers, and other geeks that come here to get current info quickly and then move on with their day. The current slashdot interface gives you the information needed efficiently without allot of white-space and graphics cluttering up the front page.
Dice.com used to be a great site, I haven't used it in years since it looks like every other cookie cutter malware site out there. So take your shitty Dice.com clone and fuck off, no one wants it and all your going to do is run this site into the ground.

Firefox 24 Arrives: WebRTC Support and NFC Sharing On Android
I remember back in the day FF was a small footprint, fast browser, then it got bloated taking up huge amounts of memory, rendering slowly , and coming out with a ridiculous release cycle that killed any corporate backing it had. I cant think of any of my clients that use FF. Sorry but FF is going to have some major performance improvements to win the masses back.

US Intercepts Iranian Order For Attack On US Embassy In Iraq
So supposedly the US and British found evidence that Syria had used sarin, but refused to divulge the details. Now a mystery communication putting Iran and Syria together if attacked. First of all if they had intercepted this, why would they tell every one about it. Now Iran is going to find another form of communication since this one is compromised. The whole scenario is playing out like a bad 80's conspiracy movie.
Would You Tell People How To Crack Your Software?
Exactly, for every 10 IT people that crack it and use it on their own time, a hand full will be impressed by it and have their own company buy it. The rest are people that would have pirated it any way.
