So Bill is at it again, gobbling up everything in his path. This time he sent Steve Ballmer to beat up Yahoo! and watching the two companies have a pissing contest is too fun! Yahoo thought Microsoft made an indecent proposal so they sent Steve Ballmer a snippy response, and MS’s answer to that is “tough crap beotch, take our offer or we’ll sweep the rug out from under your feet”. Personally, I think MS should be neutered at this point, buy nothing else until you pay off your bills first (like fines and taxes)
I decided it’s too much fun to watch the big guys go at it and was curious as to what the general consensus is for those following, or involved in, the Yahoo! vs Microsoft match.
Anyone know? Apparently, July 2008 is the start of the transition for Microsoft. So will the man be retiring or just swapping titles to Great and Powerful Oz, and sending his army of GatesBots, made out of lesser parts of Gates himself, to overrun the circuit boards of the world with new and more powerful buffer overflows? According to the article on Microsoft, he’s now going to
transition out of a day-to-day role in the company to spend more time on his global health and education work
Global Health and Education work?
I’m not sure I want to know more about what that entails, but no doubt it’ll end up bringing MS more money in the long run. I have but one major gripe with Bill though, before you turn over your immense power to the rest of the company, could you squeeze in the “Setup Project” functionality Visual C# 2005 Express? It’s cool to be able to build applications for free, but I might one day want to actually pass them along to folks to install on their machines. In the meantime, I’ve been using the Inno Setup (great program) but it would be nice to actually be able to build what one creates and be able to deploy it in the same development environment. Just a thought.
