Reading this, I wondered what the author was smoking:
Quote:
This brings us to the present epoch under Satya Nadella who, against the odds, has revived the company’s mojo and returned it to prominence. He has accomplished this by abandoning the strategies of both his forebears. Microsoft is no longer a technology-forward or a sales-forward company.
Reading this, I know what the author is smoking:
Quote:
He warns Microsoft away from its “fixed mindset” and has hired a revolving door of consultants and evangelists (including a three-year stint as cultural attaché by yours truly) to help transition the company into a “growth mindset.”
While the author hears echoes of "ka-ching, ka ching," I hear the ghosts of Nokia, SilverLight, Modern UI, Clippy, WPF, the mutilated Skype, Vista, and other titanic debacles, laughing; why are they laughing ? Because they find the screams of developers throw under the bus hilarious WTF | :WTF:
