They breed an army of dumb MCSE / MCITP Xbox jerks that think they know I.T.. These idiots slag off VMware, Linux, Apple, Android and we just sit there laughing at them.
Change is mandatory and they don't get it. Stop trying to be a creator of everything to try and kill off all competitors. Embrace the competitors and be happy with the slice of the market.
Simple.............stop being greedy.
As I have said many times on the Register. VMware is expensive (at the moment) but very very smart. It is robust, guaranteed and game changing, and it will not stop there. 90% of Enterprise Hyper-V deployments break and require MS support intervention = FUDware. Azure is much better and MS is going to kill of the MCSE and MCITPs that supported and worshipped them. So ironic!
The Real Secret Weapon is the rumour that Google is working on an advanced home entertainment centre that is built from modular colour cubes ( Google likes colours ). The cubes are added as you expand and will be Nexus type slab compute (cube), games console, iTunes type media ( audio and video) Freeview etc, with interface for a advanced phone to plug in to the cubes for portability on your belt or in your Google in-car entertainment, all cloud access available of course.
All the information you need in one system.
Bye bye Xbox, PS2, iTunes, iPad, Surface, Bose, it was nice knowing yer :-)
Don't think it will happen, but if Microsoft does not get over its VMware ( we will kill you off like we did with Novell ) current obsession, it will surely be finished off.
VMware shrinks + Google Acquisition of VMware = End of Microsoft.
MS works with VMware + MS concentrate on Office, Exchange = Microsoft survival
Along with Linux survival.
Easy maths :-)
If any of the other vendors were top dogs, you would simply say the same thing about them. Personally I am glad that Apple gets this vote, so it keeps the others on their toes. Competition is the best thing. I am glad Apple, Google, VMware, Microsoft exist but I do not want one of them to be totally dominant.
Of the aforementioned, Microsoft are always the one that preaches they want kill others off! (Ballmer bang tables etc). Glad that c*ck has gone!
Go VMware go :-)
I will buy everything apple and I do not care about cost or functionality versus Samsung or Microsoft. What else would I spend my money on?
Why?, because we need Apple, VMware and Google to survive as companies to keep Mickeysoft down. Competition is healthy.
Apple is Rolls Royce...............enough said.
I know many people that would rather buy an iPad than a Surface, just because it is Microsoft trying to barge into others market. If Microsoft would just be satisfied with dominating the Office/Applications/Windows space and stop trying to rule the world by trying to take out Apple, VMware and Google in which stills makes them billions of dollars, then people would not detest them.
It is in everybody's interest to have many companies competing as this increases quality and technological advances.
Ballmer & Co are just greedy dictators who need to grow up to be honest.
To be honest, I know many friends and techy colleagues that are quite happy to convert MS Word into PDF and iTunes board them onto their iPad for reference library stuff.
To edit, they use a laptop. The age of a single device to do all is not with us yet (or it could be a dream?).
Taxi for Ballmer - one can only hope. Oh wait a minute, stay there Stevie boy your making a right mess.
Hyper-v is free but no good on its own. Add the required System Center suite of products in the mix and MS suddenly becomes more expensive managing comparative virtualisation workloads plus configuration management overhead.
The old MS trick to get more out of you...............you mugs!
Good old VMware I say. When the majority of VMware bashers have been mentioning their downfall, VMware answers with another "IT Arena Disrupter". This will send shockwaves through the channel.
Buy your of the shelf solutions - Yes really :-) Why have hundreds of engineers to build it.
LOL = playing catch-up. Unlike NVGRE it will be more advanced, more likely be furnished with advanced firewalling capabilities and have full integration and tuning with other products in its ecosystem.......... and oh it will work more reliably under heavy workloads. VMware raising the bar yet again :-)
The reason Azure is flaky, is due to rushed implementation, backup process failures and a general slap dash approach to cloud by Microsoft!.
Build your Linux and Windows on VMware Cloud Director accompanied by robust DR concepts and and a more professional attitude to delivering Cloud properly and the situation will be much more robust if any of the componenets fail.
The whole Azure, Hyper-V, Windows Server 2012, SCCM is a rushed coded cobbled together ecosystem that is going to burn all the MS shop "follow like sheep" fanbois!. This will not be the last time customers will suffer long downtimes in all type (Azure, Hyprid, Public, Private) MS cloud mash ups!.
Pay the money and you get reliability. Its a no-brainer.
Microsoft got left behind, panicked and delivered a whole load of rubbish. Their salesman are spouting bullshit and huge exageration. And this is the company that also wants us to put faith in Hyper-V 2012!
I don't think so MS$. Openstack, VMware, Hadoop, Apple, agility and mobility are the big things again for 2013.
Yes Apple has huge competition from Android and Microsoft and ther model needs adjusting.
You forget Microsoft have come back because they are a $260 billion dollar company. Apple is just a temporary wounded animal worth $450 billion! They are not going to take all this lying down from Samsung, Microsoft and all other competitors.
They will re-invent, re-innovate, headhunt the best in the game and come back greater than ever.
Money talks and makes waves.
