Nip down to your local Wm Morrisons - some of their own label branded product packaging (ceral bars / health biscuit snack bars etc) look like the Windows 8 interface.
Would you buy one if it were boxed like that?
Moot point I think.

And so is stepping outside in the sunshine and that "nuclear industry" kills more people per annum.
Should be the other way round...
They ballsed the messaging up when they made BES work exclusively with MS SQL as a backend (why didn't they not offer an open source db alternative so each enterprise didnt need an expensive kludge for BB messaging sat on their network?).
On the other hand, a lot of (business) end users LIKE the BB keyboard instead of a finger smeared screen - the keyboard is much more accurate and quicker to type on.
Nicolaus Copernicus might have begged to differ.
@ ArmanX - Where would you place...
the e.coli observable evolution experiments for the last 23 years?
That would be...

"Don't be a . Every fcuking person on the planet is an atheist. You are too.

Maybe DC sees an opportunity for the GB Boys and Girls in the Weightlifting, Wrestling & Taekwondo medal stakes since those are the only sports the Iranians have won Olympic medals in?
the choices should not be sooner or later but later and much later with a maybe thrown in for good measure

RE: Bless the BCS
Reminds me of the illiteracy campaign once run in the States.
Posters were put up with the slogan - If you can't read this - We can help.

F14's are in there too. Interestingly the AIM-54 missiles that the F14 carried were fire and forget, the onboard computer could track over 200 targets, work out which were the biggest threats and advise which to launch against. The missle did the rest being capable of out running anything in the sky in terms of speed (with the exception of the x-15), able to pull 9g in a turn and had the longest range of any missle in service. In contrast, the current F18's missle system requires that the plane keeps flying towards the incoming target to keep it 'illuminated'.
This appears to be a backward step but then again the US probably considers the F18 superior to anything it enemies can send up against it so why waste millions of dollars on missiles that can look after themselves. the end result is just the same.
@Perhaps Microsoft is there for another reason...
Or maybe MS have been invited along to see how project management should be be done and how products can be delivered within time scale without major issues?
@Cantankerous Old Buzzard
The spam filering is possibly:
FOSE - Forefront Online Security for Exchange, formally known as
MEHS - Microsoft Exchange Hosted Services, formally known as
Frontbridge - before MS bought the company.
Frontbridge used to be good but then went downhill fast - then the rebranding started...

It used to be good but then it went downhill fast - hence the rebrands.
