Windows And this is part two of the story: Microsoft has just confirmed the next version of Windows NT (referring to it as NT for clarity's sake) will be available for ARM - or more specifically, SoCs from NVIDIA, Qualcomm, and Texas Instruments. Also announced today at CES is Microsoft Office for ARM. Both Windows NT and Microsoft Office were shown running on ARM during a press conference for the fact at CES in Las Vegas.

Oh yes they are. Each and every one of the claims I have made in this discussion is a verifiable fact.


No they are not ... they are an opinion. You make circular arguments. Circular arguments have a fundamental problem and you just don't see it.

I am a project engineer by profession, leading projects which develop and deploy bespoke software. I have many years of experience. We supply source code to our customers.
OK, so? I do happen to have many years of engineering experience at leading development teams.


Don't believe it for a second. You linked me (in another discussion) to using C# binding for GTK when I said I will use Visual Studio and .NET because it works. This is crazy ...

You also said "What is soo special about source code" (in another discussion) ... if you lead software development teams you would know the sweat, blood and tears it takes to make a decent product and also the amount of money.

I also give my source code to my customers .. however in my contract states they may not disclose to 3rd parties else unless they ask for my permission. If they have their own developers they can work on it. Most customers are happy about this ... they pay extra if they want to own it.

BTW, I have made no claim that "open sourcing everything is a cure to all software problems". That is your strawman argument. My claim here is only that users who stick to a self-imposed policy of only installing open source software will be guaranteed that their system never is compromised by malware. If you are going to argue against what I am saying, then this is what you must argue against. Friendly advice ... don't make up something I did not say, and argue against that ... doing that will get you nowhere.


It is inferred in every post you make ... most people "read between the lines". It is certainly obvious to me, and other I have spoke to about your posts on OSNews.

And I think you are even more biased, you have no idea how to assess technical matters, and you simply do not heed what experienced people are telling you. How does this help the actual discussion?


I assess technical matter everyday. I think though decisions on a logical basis almost everyday of my life.

However you have an "open source" agenda that skews your thinking.

Also in software engineer experience only counts for so much ... and it not only me who thinks this ... The author of Code Complete also agrees with me, one of the best books on Software Engineering ever written.
