    Only when there’s no guarantee they’ll be deleted, yeah.

    QED. No ability to respond to factual points. A 1-line rejoinder master.

    Hey moron, I am not paid to do anything here. I accidentally landed

    here while following some search links about Ballmer's retirement

    speech, which again I accidentally stumbled on while reading my

    daily tech news.


    Answer me, maestro. Why no XCode for the PC or Linux ? Or do

    you even know what XCode is ? 


    On 2nd thoughts, forget it. Have a happy iPhone life!

    On the contrary. Post some and we’ll be able to respond.

    Because that would be idiotic. How is that even a question?

     "We have unbelievable potential in front of us, we have an unbelievable destiny,"



    Why don't I believe that?

    That could be bad just as easily as good.

    I believe that Microsoft’s destiny is unbelievable.


    Like thus:

    “It’s unbelievable that a company which once commanded 95% of the world’s computer marketshare is now destined to file for bankruptcy.”

    “Guess that goes to show what happens when you steal ideas from those who create them, huh?”

    Quote: "Only our company and a handful of others [Apple, Google and Amazon] are poised to write the future," he continued. "We're going to think big, we're going to bet big."

    Not stating the obvious makes it nothing but spin, but in his position, most of us would probably have said it the same way. It's long been Microsoft's tactic to de-reference the competition out of their perceived reality, out of existence if possible; "Pay them no mind!"

    Now that MS has Skype, I notice we've graduated from minor bugs to complete non-functionality before the next update. Great. Maybe they won't slit its throat like they did Connectix' Virtual-PC.
