  • GoingNative 53: Learning STL ​Multithread​ing

    this was so good. thanks!

  • Windows Subsystem for Linux: File System

    Why not put the lxss file system inside a VHD?

  • The Future of Programming



    Wow. This isn't really the place to do this, I think. But there are many, many, objective measurements and studies documenting the wage gap between women and men in lots of fields. It is structural. Also, most scientists agree on global warming, there really isn't a controversy. Also, text books are probably a bad place for religious instruction. Also, gender reassignment means that one should use the bathroom that matches their new gender. Also, supply side economics have failed at every turn over the last 40 years. Also, chemtrails aren't real. Also, if you have ever been to Dallas, it's easy to see how Oswald could have made that shot. Also, you don't lose anything when someone else gains. Also, racism is still very real in America. Also, they mean that "black lives should matter more than they do now" and no one meant to imply that your life somehow doesn't matter. Also, no one wants your guns, we want to be safe in public. Also, the government didn't invent HIV. Also, the media does have a liberal bias but it doesn't work in the way that you think and FOX news is a cancer on the body politic. Also, vince foster actually killed himself. Also, picking apart just one of these doesn't make the others less valid. Also, things are probably better than you think and your selection bias reinforces your notions that today is worse that some golden time.


  • The Future of .NET Languages

    VB is not junk and who made you king of forum posts anyway? The jerk store called and said that your delivery of jerk is ready because you're a jerk. Jerk.

  • Project Centennial: Bringing Existing Desktop Applications to the Universal Windows Platform

    Sweet monkey in heaven, it's about time. This is what it's really going to take to get quality software sold in the Store. 

  • Identity features in ASP.NET

    You guys could implement SCIM in asp.net identity and people could still integrate with Azure AD from a provisioning standpoint. (In the cases where people don't want to use Azure AD as a directory.)

  • Live Q&A: Windows Application Development with Kevin Gallo

    Project centennial or whatever the bridge was called to bring over win32 applications to the store is what the store really lacks. Why can't users buy real (existing) windows programs from the store? When is that coming?

  • Project Centennial": Converting your Classic Windows App (Win32, .Net, COM) to a Universal Windows App for Distribution in the Windows Store


    Wow, you are still answering questions all these months later? That's really cool. Is there any news on this "bridge"? I think its really the key to seeing the store pick up.

  • Docker Overview for .NET Developers

    Again...I haven't heard a good description of containers from anyone at MS.


    For anyone that's interested... containers are namespaces for files and processes. Docker provides the ability to specify the difference between the "base" os and what you've changed to get your app running. That's why getting a docker image from the hub up and running is so quick. It only fetches the difference from the base... then when it starts the container it creates a private view of all the system processes and files that are in the base plus the differences. Check out cgroups on Linux, jails in BSD, or zones in Solaris... very similar.

  • Automation Overview and Roadmap for Windows Server and System Center

    You guys should open source orchestrator.

  • Secure Access to Enterprise Networks and VPN Platform Enhancements

    Thanks for the response. I know you guys are busy, and I really appreciate you taking time to reach out.

    Is there any discussion about supporting DA in Azure IaaS going on internally?

    What is being discussed around adding DA features to VPN? Will the machine still be able to authenticate "transparently"...that is, without user intervention?

  • Secure Access to Enterprise Networks and VPN Platform Enhancements

    Please add support for hosting DirectAccess servers in Azure VM's. 



    I hope that you guys actually read this. Administrators like DirectAccess because they want the machine to authenticate back to the corporate environment. Having that work over multiple protocols and being able to manage out to the clients is awesome. It's REALLY disturbing to hear that you guys aren't investing development in this feature anymore. If you are planning to move features to the VPN subsystem it needs to do EVERYTHING that DirectAccess currently does.

    The guy that asked a question about DirectAccess in Azure...this would be such a great feature for companies that are connected to Azure via S2S VPN tunnels or ExpressRoute. Being able to stand-up those DirectAccess servers in Azure VM's is a great idea for all the same reasons that standing any internet facing app in Azure VM's is...

    You're not listening...did you notice all the questions about DA from the audience?
