What a shame!
A minor balance for all the UK IT staff forced out of work by Indian staff taking British jobs.

"...the issue is likely only to affect a small subset of Redmond's customers." - Yes, they are Win 8.x users (all of 'em).
The only update most users want is Windows 9. Unless, of course, it includes TIFKAM.
For desktop/laptop users Win 7 is just great. It ain't broke - don't fix it.
THAT was obvious right from the the Beta versions of Win8 - and NOTHING has changed to alter that view.
If Microsoft don't pull their corporate finger out and realise that Win9 has to bring back USEABILITY and RELIABILITY, then their main market will just become part of computing history VERY quickly!
...........To keep an operating system that is actually USEABLE (unlike the APPALLING Windows 8).
As I pointed out when Win8 first appeared, enterprises will not install something which requires such a large amount of user training with the associated COST.
Microsoft need to go back to the drawing board QUICKLY and produce something useable in the enterprise.
......TEAMVIEWER is always my preferred solution.
Go Teamviewer (FREE) - You know it makes sense!!!
Much more reliable than Logmein anyway and less hassle to connect once installed. File transfer and VPN - it's all there!
Anyone who treats their users like Logmein suddenly decided to do, doesn't deserve ANY users.
"I felt stabbed in the back by an employer that I had worked my nuts off for."
More fool you for thinking your employer was a "good egg" - most are shite, some more shitey than others, but most will treat you as an expensive overhead that they would rather not have to deal with and would sell down the river given half a chance.
Honeywell was a notable exception to that rule.
......that Microsoft have completely and utterly LOST THE PLOT!
My prediction is that Android will become the standard for phones and tablets, with IOS as a niche OS.
The question is given that M$oft seem to have lost the plot with desktops/laptops, what will take over?
Linux has not done it, so perhaps Android?
So VERY TRUE. I once worked for a supplier to government and was horrified by the number of people employed (at public expense) to do IT procurement. And, from their Invitations to tender, they clearly had little or no idea either about what was wanted, or how IT systems worked, let alone how to have a cost-justified system..
Can they make these nanotubes from carbon dioxide? Then tell the bonkers scientists that this will soak up all the surplus CO2 that mankind is ALLEGEDLY pumping into the atmosphere and causing global warming, wait, COOLING, no wait again, WARMING, - whatever - that is actually being caused by a not totally stable raging nuclear furnace located 93 million miles offshore.
