Microsoft Now this is something you don't read every day. Dick Brass, vice president at Microsoft from 1997 to 2004, has written an article for The New York Times' Op-Ed section, detailing the flaws in Microsoft's corporate culture, and how they've severely affected the company in a negative way. Telling, and painful. And, in a way, very sad. Update: Microsoft responds. "For Microsoft, it is not sufficient to simply have a good idea, or a great idea, or even a cool idea. We measure our work by its broad impact."

You're such an idiot it's painful to respond, but I will.

So ... you mention that OS's and Office apps are moving towards being free, and you pull up the example of OpenOffice and Linux.

I respond by saying nobody pays for Linux/Linux-based Office apps, and nobody ever has.

Then, another dumbass jumps in and spouts off about RedHat Enterprise Linux on the Server! NOT free!

I reply and say, "no shit, but he was obviously talking about desktop Linux OS, since he was also talking about using Office apps."

Now, you come back and say you weren't talking about desktop linux and Office apps .... so ... you were instead talking about Linux on the server, and Linux Office apps on the server? Is that your stance, now?

If so, you're even dumber than the dumbest freetard, which is a pretty good feat.

Oh! OK! cause I'm the one who doesn't know my own minde...

Right! Because nobody has ever requested a Linux desktop environment and I haven't spent two weeks installing SLED.

I reply and say, "no shit, but he was obviously talking about desktop Linux OS, since he was also talking about using Office apps."

I totally see where you're coming from there, because I obviously don't know the difference between a desktop OS and a server OS, even though I design and implement systems of such complexity you couldn't even dream of.

Now, you come back and say you weren't talking about desktop linux and Office apps .... so ... you were instead talking about Linux on the server, and Linux Office apps on the server? Is that your stance, now?

I come back? I think not! Your inability to understand another persons posts is not that persons fault, son. It's yours. Would you like a bigger shovel to help dig yourself out of that hole?

If so, you're even dumber than the dumbest freetard, which is a pretty good feat.

Coming from you, that is a particularly poignant statement.

Like all freetards, you're an expert at MovingTheGoalposts(TM)

This site was built with you in mind: http://tmrepository.com/fudtracker/

I'll let you go back to your "awesome Linux systems" that you build in your mother's basement. I have 10 RHEL Tikanga servers to work on at Rackspace for a client, getting mod_jk setup for load balancing.
