Microsoft hits Alt-F4 on 3,000 global sales staff


Re: Windows 10 social timeline

Cloud is just a fancy way of saying 'other people's computers'.

Therefore, saying 'my cloud', denoting personal ownership, is an oxymoron.

Not always. I have a 'cloud'[1] service running from one of my spare bedrooms[2]. On my server, using my electricity.

[1] Called NextCloud. Used to be OneCloud but, one day there was a thunderstorm and OneCloud evaporated.

[2] It's never had a bed in it. And it has aircon and a reasonable UPS. But still, technically, a bedroom. And very useful when coming back from walking the dog - 10 minutes sitting in there cools you down nicely.
