Why are they imagining Microsoft is dead?

Why are they imagining Microsoft is dead?

I found this “poem” at CrunchGear.  I don’t know why everybody is saying Microsoft is dying.  As they say, you win some, you lose some.

Having said that, I know where they’re coming from.  I understand Microsoft operating systems (and other products) have issues but which OS hasn’t?  Microsoft is blah.  Windows is blah.  The truth of the matter is, these naysayers have no better alternative.

I’m not a big Microsoft fan (although they are secretly paying me for this post) but Microsoft has been very helpful with my office productivity for 13 years now. Read the rest of this entry

Microsoft vs Apple – I’m a PC

Microsoft vs Apple – I’m a PC

Google screenshot.Do you think Apple hijacked the keywords “i’m a pc”? When you search Google for the phrase “i’m a pc”, the first results that come out is an Apple web page.

“I’m a PC.”, of course, is the slogan that Microsoft uses repetitively in their new series of advertisements post-Seinfeld.

I support the initiative to drop Internet Explorer 6 ASAP a hundred and one and one-half percent. Well, I haven’t been supporting IE6 for maybe six months now anyway. I guess you can partially blame my Vista OS for not supporting IE6. I imagine IE6 can be a bitch especially when you’re customizing your WordPress themes. Read the rest of this entry

D Programming Language

D Programming Language

So, what is Microsoft up to nowadays?  No, not the bid to buy Yahoo.  It seems it is creating a new programming language code-named “D”.  “D” will be a declarative language – it describes what something is like, rather than how to create it.  Examples of declarative languages are markup languages like HTML, XML and to some degree Flex’s MXML.  It really is meant to be used by web developers who are not hardcore programmers.

I have no idea why we will need this language but I can’t wait to use “Z”.
