Re: Upgrading an OS isn't a magical solution
I'm sure someone, somewhere, around 15 years ago said hey, maybe we shouldn't be locking ourselves in with this architecture, and got ignored or shouted down
Yes, that was me, back then, IE, activex, flash video crap was the new dead end, whatever you did, whatever you wrote did not matter, there was always a Vicky Pollard saying "because corporate policy" or Carol Beer saying "Computer says no" :
Later, when in Windows Vista IE changed versions, they could not use it and had to remain on XP ... because corporate policy ... had they ONLY listened ... but guess what ? They are still not listening. Ohh, we desperately need SSL 3.0 support because, well ... corporate policy and you know, it works ... we are enterprise so we just cannot do it corporate policy ... what, other companies have enterprise systems using TLS 3.0 ? Well, we have only just received funding to TLS 1.0, yes we know it is deprecated, but "corporate policy", rollout planned for 2025.
No, MickeySoft, we are a customer of yours, so you cannot turn off TLS 1.0, how dare you, we have not even rolled it out, yet!
