It's my destiny to manage a Windows Server 2008, which is not so strange since I'm in Spain, a country where Microsoft and Google are owned by their almost absolute lack of training and the fact of seeing information technology as an appliance.

The fact is that with this attitude the windows server is an appliance that crazy Spanish people, needless to say it is worse for Linux.

Windows 7: Did you know it's actual version?

Posted 10-15-2010 at 10:25 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Microsoft no longer sells software as their primary business!

Posted 10-14-2010 at 02:46 PM by rich_c

A few recent news stories have lead me to the firm conclusion that Microsoft is no longer a credible software company. I know a lot of people have been saying that for a long time, but here are a few pointers that indicate they’ve gone from being a tech company to become a legal firm.
