Microsoft creator of a Malware OS

Is it no surprise that a creator of a Malware OS is busy finding flaws in others' code? Isn't that what makers of malware do?

Microsft has been accused of this before...

...dumping over bloated patches on the last OS when they release a new OS.

The "New Microsoft" has now been more aggressive than ever.

It's that bad

"Microsoft calls this an "integrated experience," and believes Bing is your best bet for looking up info on the internet using Cortana."

Shares down?! But, but, but ... Apple just made $50bn – that's the way the Cookie grumbles

tempemeaty

Interesting

"Mac shipments of 4 million units and $5bn represented a 9 per cent drop in revenue and a 12 per cent drop in shipments."

That seems to line up with what other Mac users I've met tell me, that they have been holding off new Mac purchases. They don't feel the latest versions of OSX have delivered the Apple Experience and quality they're used to and new Macs are over due.

Last time I mentioned this Microsoft strategic behavior and an one of the examples of it shown in that article, it fell on def ears. I thought I was the last one in the room who remembered and understood this. I also didn't know that it was discovered in "United States v. Microsoft antitrust". Thank you for that link and for Remembering.

Perhaps the first step in a corporate stratagy?

From a Linux point of view, another distro isn't going to make one bit of difference.

From a corporate point of view, Microsoft might use their corporate presence to draw other corporate interests off of supporting mainline Linux distros at some point.

Now they've got their own version of Linux as well as something that runs on Linux and I'm sitting here remembering the Java situation and wondering...

Oops sorry. Can't go to Mars. Spent the money elsewhere...

Nice to see they're finding ways to spend money on others things so they can later claim not to be funded well enough to do the Mars trip after all. Enough burning up money continuing to go in circles around the earth. It's time to get off the pot NASA & Congress.

It looks like Mars is going to the Chinese. NASA and every politician in the US Gov are going to be disgraced for centuries.

Cheap Chinese Metals?

It wouldn't surprise me if the Chinese manufacture used a poor quality cheap amalgam with low amounts of copper for the cords' internal metal wire. It's a known common practice with cheap Chinese manufacturing. It would surprise me if Microsoft failed to look out for this or worse, knew it and looked the other way.

I've seen the way people attack each other on internet forums and get savagely over emotional about the littlest things. If one could find the other there would be a hate crime. Multiply this by the number of forums on the web and we'd have an explosion of stalkers and hate crimes on Armageddon-like levels across the US. It's anonymity that's been keeping the peace...

Re: Curse you, McAfee!

Yes. The level of how much I detest BOTH Adobe and McAfee for this can not be measured on any scale in the known universe. I recently was had when I was sure I had ALL the install boxes unchecked as well.

This is an absolutely CERTAIN way to wreck any computer which already has another brand of Anti Virus software on it. It's an incredible irresponsibility on the part of Adobe to include McAfee in the install at all.

Quantity over Quality...?

The frequency of each reiteration of their OS has been a compromise in the overall quality that is negatively affecting their users experience. I sincerely hope that Apple reconsiders it's desires for a new OS on a yearly basis. They could just release a new featured theme for it once a year and a more thoroughly debugged OS once every two years. This way they could increase the compatibility between versions, improve security and provide a user experience more in step with the quality expected of products under the Apple name.
