Astonishing! Who would have thought they are so advanced in this domain?
Stop reading here if you don’t want to read a rant!
Although this is hardly news there are bits that still puzzle me. For example why did the choose the VMWare and not the Microsoft solution? They are Microsoft fans since forever, even using IIS as web server. I remember the `good old days’ when they were struggling with a very performant MSSql server that wasn’t able to use 8 cores(or it was 8GB RAM? who cares) and they had to upgrade to Gold Membership to patch it.
Another thing I have noticed is that they are using blogger as platform for their blog. But but … Microsoft is going to use WordPress as I found out in this article.
Is the marriage between Ian and Microsoft going through a hard time? Who knows …
On an ending note I find the site interface one of the worst and is it just me or the whole site moves very slow?
P.S.Don’t close my vWorker account!!!
