glaring propaganda of promoting Microsoft article
It would be informative if the article author - Trevor Pott - would spell out cearly exactly what is the superior technology that Microsoft posesses in sentence -- ...."Will the superiority of its (Microsoft's) technology"...
Microsoft enjoys only about 10% of global Cloud Computing Services, compared to 28% for Amazon AWS and approximately 45% for various OpenStack Cloud based vendors - according to report by Synergy Resarch Group, whose results corrolate closely with other reputable findings. Azure Cloud services have become quite dependant on integrated Redhat and Ubuntu Linux Server solutions in order to run "Docker" Containerization and Hadoop Big Data Analytics that are mandated by it's customers. The company is also dependant completely on FreeBSD networking stack just to run it's networking infrastructure, and is basically non-competitive with Enterprise Linux which runs not only all USA and international banking and Financial Services firms, but NASA and aerospace industries science, research institutions and Top500 most powerful supercomputers on earth, as just a few examples
Google, Fcebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Yahoo, Android Mobile Operating System (OS) , ChromeOS, commercial Drones, Rasberry Pi, Apple – the list is endless, has no reliance on Microsoft technologies.
As Mr. Pott admitted in article, Microsoft is a no-show for competitiveness in any aspect of Social Media and Mobile computing, including Smartphones, tablets. Even Chromebooks are greatly outselling every make and model of Windows Laptops in last 3 years of Amazon end of year seasonal shopping.
If Pott is referring to the Desktop, which is dimishing rapidly then he also needs to explain technically just what is the superiority of Windows 8/10 over Apple OS X and Ubuntu/LinuxMint.
Trevor Pott has demonstrated that he is merely a Microsoft shill, promoting his heroine company to a modern audience that sees right through the hype and crass propaganda.
