Uh, marriage, by its very definition, is a life sentence.

What I find truly terrifying is that I can't recall the last time someone came out with a killer application that leveraged the Windows API. Microsoft's dumped Silverlight and a host of other great technologies and has gone "mainstream". But in the course of doing so, they've eliminated what made Windows so incredibly special in the first place.

Microsoft is having a major identity problem. Their stack rank system sows mistrust among employees, people make safe decisions, and over time, their strategy becomes nothing but catch up. But the really alarming thing to see from Microsoft now, and their apologists in this very comment thread, is the arrogance against the end user. "Hey, I'm using Windows 8 and it works for me!"

It doesn't matter if it works for YOU. It matters if it's widely accepted and adopted as a new paradigm in emerging computing environments. WIndows Phone sales are flat. Windows Tablet sales are non-existent and interest is nil. When Microsoft shrugs off the newly emerging markets and disparages the "stupid users", they're speaking exactly as IBM used to rationalize twenty years ago, just before Windows killed OS/2. And you know what happened? Everybody put a happy face on IBM but the fact is, they never were the same. They lost control of the API, the developer network, the technology market, and the entire computer kingdom. They're pretty much nothing but a bunch of consultants now and Microsoft is on that same path. You would think that Microsoft would recognize this repetition of history but they don't, and you know why? Because all of the folks who battled IBM either left or were driven out of the company.

This scares me and I don't even work for Microsoft. You local Microsoft haters can hate all you want but if you're also property owner keep this in mind - if Microsoft fails, your own property investment will collapse. Everybody, even the local haters, have a stake in Microsoft succeeding.

I love how the writers wind up knocking off yet another black man and all of the sudden, one of them says, "Whoah! Waitaminute! That was our last black man! HR's gonna freak! Quick! Find another one!"
