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."

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.

Pathetic. You can come and play with the big boys once you've designed and set up 200+ CPU POWER or SPARC systems, partitioned into hundreds of vrtualized environments with hundreds of terabytes SAN attached running either either AIX, Solaris or Linux, your choice. Here's a hint for you: Fibre Channel is often used for this kind of thing.

There is no way to sugar coat what I'm about to say so I'm just going to spit it out. It takes a very special kind of idiocy to:
A: Mouth off to other people when you have failed to understand something properly.
B: Freak out and then go into denial when you are then called out about it and finally
C: Fight a losing rear guard action like it's some kind of life or death situation.

Those three points lead me to conclude that you are retarded. Now, there is nothing wrong with being a retard, you just need to be aware that there are certain situations and conversations where you are not going to be able to keep up. Knowing your limitations is an important step towards wisdom, something you can use to mitigate your retardation in future.

Like all paid MS shills, this one leads with an insult, posts a link to a site that's anti-(anyone not pro-MS), then pretends to work on linux systems in an effort to appear "unbiased".

MS shilling at its best - not a lick of intelligent content, much less thought. ;)

Lol! Yeah, a bit of load balancing on a few Linux webservers obviously makes him more qualified than I am when it comes to systems and infrastructure. I'd love to see his face if he ever had to do a real job. I can just imaging the look of panic when he realizes that is abnormally low IQ just doesn't cut the mustard when dealing with anything else but his pathetic attempts at passing off assumptions as facts.

He's good for a bit of comic relief, though. At least that's something.
