More Evidence on MSFT Death

This is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard a manager say publicly:

…the general manager of virtualization strategy at Microsoft, Mike Neil, said the company is making some “tough decisions” to meet its schedule.

“Shipping is a feature too,” Neil said.

Yes it is. Especially when you cut features your main two competitors (Xen and VMware) have had for years. Yet another example of MSFT getting completely owned by their nimbler competitors (including one open-source one) after already being years late to the party.

See the original blog post for a bunch of wonderful acronyms, buzzwords, biz-speak, and worthless explaination.

I just realized I’ve been doing way too much MSFT bashing… It’s just been pretty easy recently. I’m not usually this much of a hater.
