Maybe need to be clear here - the new HTML5 client is the replacement for the older (and Flash based) Web Client. This has been a Fling this year, and iterated every few weeks - it's not perfect / fully functional yet, but that team are going great guns.

Re: I wonder what they're planning to break
But their DCs are not here, but in Oregon, Washington, and Nevada. The reason is California power prices are massively higher.
I don't have the time or inclination to go through all their download pages, but for the 5900 Comware image the fixes were posted early January, so this may be more a notification issue due to one or two laggard builds.
Re: Zip code for non-US cards
The PAYG thing is insane, go to the trouble of getting your phone unlocked, manage to find a nano-SIM on a UK PAYG net, then find the only way to get more credit on it is buying a retail voucher - marked up massively compared with online. Seemed to be 4:1 last time I tried this, 2014 I think, I spent 100 quid on what online should have been 30.
Re: 122GB ? Pah. Windows 10 OneDrive client ate over 200GB of my files!
OneDrive is so not-fit-for-purpose that I think it only exists to demonstrate how well sorted DropBox is.
Re: "CTO ambassador"???
His title is Staff Solutions Architect, he is also a member of the internal CTO Ambassador program, think someone transcribed from the wrong line on his mail sig.
Re: Sounds fair
That's precisely why when congress last discuss this back in the 90's, they delayed it pending the setup of the 'SST' streamlined sales tax arrangement, where a bunch of states agreed to pay for 3rd parties to collate and calculate and file taxes for small business. These days using a SaaS service to calculate the tax is easy and free (the states pay rather than the business).
Don't forget people are supposed to have been paying their out of state sales taxes all along, just by adding them to their tax returns at the end of the year, just nobody did.
Re: Obvious strategy is obviously missing
I think part of the problem is the obsession with VM mobility rather than application workload mobility. It's much easier to distribute load with an F5 GTM or equivalent between environments fairly seamlessly than it is to vMotion to another environment over limited bandwidth, then have all the challenges of overlay networking in order to retain IP addressing.
By all means develop Cloud Connector to move VMs around and translate between different hypervisor VM container formats, but the higher in the stack you do some of this stuff the easier it is, both to accomplish and especially to support and troubleshoot.
Disclaimer - I work for F5, I know there are other solutions available.
FCoE was trapped at top of rack until the multi-hop additions were added - it's still very limited compared to FC, so I'd fully expect FC to reign for a while longer in the core of large SANs. Not forever though, maintaining a whole separate SAN infrastructure just doesn't add up with 10 and soon 40 gig Ethernet cheaper and with QoS/lossless extensions, Brocade better stockpile that hay...
What widgets are in the screenshot?
I like the date/time and weather with a transparent background.
Cisco comparison is a bit silly
Yes the currently shipping Nexus blades have 32 ports of which only 8 are available in 'dedicated' non-oversubscribed mode, but that's a first generation card. There's a 32 port non-oversubscribed one due in a couple of months - still only 256 ports I know, but I doubt Arista has shipped any of these yet either. So you'd only need a pair of Nexus 7010's or one Nexus 7018 to reach 384 ports. The Cisco also has a modular backplane, and a roadmap for a lot more performance.
Granted I'm sure the Arista will still be much less expensive.
Bloat contributes to this
As Flash / Acrobat / iTunes / whatever version increment they get bigger and bigger and slower and slower - so even if security flaws are present there's a disincentive to let them upgrade themselves.
