    Coincidence?

    Hm. Let's see:

    Microsoft is behind schedule plugging their security holes AND the Interior Department was knocked offline due to security holes...I wonder what vendor the majority of their software comes from?

    Microsoft claims that "This work is making our software not come out as quickly". Yeah- before M$ stuff was always released ahead of or right on schedule. Geez, if they slowed down their releases any more they'd go backwards.

    I don't get it.

    Apple is a 6 Billion dollar company. Microsoft is *how* big? Apple can release a totally overhauled operating system in a few years (after some false starts). Microsoft, with its huge R&D budget, can't manage to release any major OS on time, and is slipping even more now that they have to show a basic committment to quality and security. What the h*** is wrong with them? Microsoft has the resources and the people to kick Apple's a** on these things. How come they can't?

    Its a Longshot allright

    half of their resources are on longshot and it won't be out for "several" years, how much are the security efforts in DC costing the taxpayers? When is this bull #$%t gonna stop? Seeding the market with the "possibility" of charging for XP "upgrades" well there's the new revenue projections for next year, and they promise that they are going to do a "better" job of patching ah ha ha ha ha ha. And Gates was the keynote speaker at the RSA security show. A sad state of affairs, Hopefully today the EU will grow some balls and hit them fairly hard, unlike the spineless US Gov. Luckily the public is a fickle bunch and as its beginning to cost them money maybe they'll wise up (I can dream can't I) Spin as they might M$ is on the slippery slope. Time for you to leave!

    In case if have not had your business 101 class yet, and it seems like you have not, big business move much slower than small ones but have much great resources to work with.

    When you become a consultant, you can use this over and over: tell large companies to decentralize into smaller autonomous departments so they can act quicker and tell small disparate departments that they consolidate and scale their strengths. :)
