  • the next 5 years is crucial to MS.

    @figuerres:

    Oh you mean the speculations are bad.

    Well, this thread isn't speculating on anything. It is more of wait for 5 years and see. Just that, this thread expect after 5 years, the future of MS will be quite fixed rather than in the gray zone.

    @figuerres:

    Sure. My thread actually accept the fate of MS seal the deal as second IBM. That is not the end of MS as we all know IBM is still living large.

    Personally, I wish MS keeping the dream of Personal Computing alive. That's how I grow up with MS. I did not grow up with IBM. And when the fate is sealed, it would be me looking for the next company that pursuit the dream of Personal Computing, regardless that is still MS or not.

    Ahhhh..... I see. Just exclude me from "us" because I am too much of MS fanboy. What is not best for MS is also not best for me.

  • just tried the iWatch.

    ok,next bigthing will be iRing :)



    Lolz, my brother said, after we make a bigger iWatch like iPhone6, it will be time for iRing (the day I made the thread). And pretty soon, you will get XL version of iRing and move on to the next.

    I am not sure what you mean by, if that's what it takes, maybe it is for the best to very well alienate business customers. What action would you consider alienate business customers?

    Because I have a feeling you are referring to Start Menu and it wasn't alienating business customers only, it alienates existing Personal Computing user base. Win8 was a disaster from the Personal Computing stand point. It wasn't from a business perspective.

    Of course, I am not sure of your subject. Maybe you are referring to something else.

    @bondsbw:

    From your post. I say Apple did a great job redefining the meaning of PC. Because if you look at Bill did, you know what Personal Computer or Personal Computing meant for him. And somehow the rest of the world think otherwise because of Apple brainwashing.

  • asp.net V5 will there also be a .Net V5 release coming?

    @swheaties:

    You still have .Net 4.6 in .Net 2015 release, so don't worry about that. I think .Net Core is build for Azure world only.

    The client will have two camps. .Net 4.6 vs .Net Native.

    The web will be .Net 4.6 (most kiddy websites will use this) vs .Net Core (bigger company with more resources and working with Azure). And of course, there is third camp, cheapy WebHosting .Net with free OS out there.

    But, I am confident .Net4.6 and its successors will be in the future .Net 20xx releases.

    @swheaties:

    I am okay with some of the things. It is not like MS needs to be best at everything. But MS was a Personal Computing company, it wasn't a Business only company. But now, MS is drastically behind Personal Computing market.

    Yes, they already made tons of mistakes before and there are efforts to correct that. That's why I think the next 5 years are the final straws. After that, it will be either IBM or remain as a Personal Computing company. And that will not change until MS is really down the hole that is open for any major direction change.

    I read this all the time -- not just here --- can someone explain to me how a company can be "done for" or  "failing", or the like, because they don't produce a product that they haven't produced before?

    I'm no economist -- so I don't understand this at all. Why does Microsoft have to make a watch? Why does Microsoft have to get into wearables? Why does Microsoft have to produce a good [insert random product type here] or else they will fail?

    Ford has been producing cars for a century and they've never, to my knowledge, manufactured a television. They're still in business.

     



    I am just saying done for, as in, done selling Personal Computing products. MS will stay alive just like IBM.

    I'd say sliding your finger along the side is easier than grabbing hold of a tiny know and fiddling with it. People managed the scroll wheel on ipods too, right?

     But yeah, I guess I'll have to try it.



    Based on your reaction right here. I highly recommend you to try it. It is not what you expected and I am not good at describing it. And you probably want to talk to the apple helper about the issue too. Because my bro had a helper and explained it before i raised the question.
