  • Blog Post: Lebewohl, Vista! Man war unfair zu Dir…

    Hi… ich hatte gerade in der U-Bahn von der Discuss&Discover ein interessantes Gespräch. Wieder mal jemand, der nix gutes zu Vista zu sagen hatte, obwohl er es nie wirklich benutzt hatte. Armes, Vista! Das war dein Schicksal. Für mich war Vista ein Developer-Release von Windows. So viele Neuigkeiten...

  • Blog Post: Cloud Computing and Open Source

    Hi…   i just had an interesting morning at IDC. They presented a study around cloud computing and just as IBM, T-Systems and RedHat, Microsoft was part of the game. During the session there was this idea that ??? cloud computing = Open Source ??? at least the RedHat evangelist put it that way. His...
  • Blog Post: Cloud Computing versus Hosts

    Hi… I found an article – actually I have seen lots of those in the past few weeks – which compares hosts to what cloud computing is about today. Mostly the conclusion is “see, we already had that all and we should never have left host computing in the first place”. Well, this is true and wrong at the...
  • Blog Post: Celebrate the 20th anniversary... not your first!!

    Hi... my father is a civil engineer and I will always remember when he celebrated the 20th anniversary of his own shop quite a while ago. He started his speech with the words "We did not celebrate our first year because we did not know if we would make the second. Now - twenty years later - I think...

    Hi... you all are still aware of the bug that had been introduced into Debian random key generation two years before it has been discovered.

  • Blog Post: Seeing the farewell to Bill Gates…

    …Yes, I work for Microsoft and I am proud of it. To be very honest he was one of the reasons I joined this company. The people working here are my personal reason to stay… Microsoft – Change the world or go home!!! We just started… CU 0xff
  • Blog Post: Taking the Desktop Metaphor to the Web…???

    Hi… I just saw an article on WebOSes. To give a short definition: Browser based “OS” which provides basic OS functionality as reading/writing data to a simulated file system, allows multiple windows on the screen and such alike. First I was really impressed. Then I thought a bit longer … ;-) What this...
  • Blog Post: Evangelism explained

    Hi... my title is "Manager Evangelism & Marketing Operations" and I am asked frequently what the reason is behind using this word: Evangelists!? Well, sometimes it is better to let others speak: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technology_evangelist For me the idea behind Evangelism is that evangelism...
  • Blog Post: A long Way to JPEG or Microsoft 2.0

    Hi... Do you know HD-Photo aka Windows Media Photo?? Anyway, it will change its name again to JPEG XR. Wow, JPEG?? Yes, JPEG. I like this story because it shows the "new Microsoft", a Microsoft which is unknown (and almost unbelievable) to some guys out there. So, let's assume we would gather a group...
  • Blog Post: Interesting Clipping: The Box of Freedom

    HI... as usual I am listening audio books when jogging through the woods. One model really struck me (I nearly bumped into a tree while thinking about it): Think about most animals or robots: There is a direct reaction to a stimulus. Think about humans (or some higher mammals): There is a box of freedom...
  • Blog Post: Sorry, no Schadenfreude allowed!!

    Hi... in my last posting I was bit harsh to Apple because of the security of its iPhone. OK, now I learned that they even block out 3rd party software. If you try to mess around with it, it will simply block itself for ever. Anyway, this is not on me to comment... think about the guy using a three year...
  • Blog Post: Can you be cool but not secure?

    HI... to make it short: Yes, you absolutely can... for a few days at least. Maybe you saw this "APPLE-SA-2007-09-27 iPhone v1.1.1 Update" announcement by Apple. It fixes (or at least tries to... who knows in the end) to fix 6 bugs in Safari, two in the mail client, and one in the Bluetooth Subsystem...

    Hi... Do you now " System Administrator from Hell "?? (See here for example) I have to add the Universal Explanation: Microsoft is patching the whole planet at once and that's why the stars stop moving until all machine have rebooted. if you ever have problems with your software blame it on Microsoft...

    Hi... <My-Opinion Disclaimer="This is just my personal opinion and has nothing to do with what my employer does or states. If you want to blame somebody, blame me."> I just saw an article on patents. The key messages were... "... that patents alone will not make a society an innovation...
