The latest Microsoft Re-Org is a Sandstorm that has engulfed suddenly everything in the industry. Some people are confused and rushing towards numerous MVP’s pop-in’ in and out in the midst of that sandstorm of half truths, FUD, technical illiteracy, and similar Mirages.
Therefore I am not indulging in yet another feverish mega debate for or against some minor part of the Empire. I have this urge to do the opposite. Thus, I would like to propose to you the three fundamental facts (TFF) we need to agree upon: Continue reading “Windows in danger!”
HTML5 spoiling the assumed balance? We are in 2017 Q4, XAML is back to the Windows and here to stay. So what is this HTML5 title all about?
Aim is here to show you a bit of a history regarding XAML in the context of my text bellow written 6 years ago. Ok, let’s rewind to 2011. WinJS is raging beast in the Windows woods. Windows 8 is out. Times are interesting. One must always take the opportunity to learn from history
In all of my gullible-ity of one seasoned M£FT guinea pig, I assumed the UAC issues have somehow been solved as WIN10 progressed through numerous updates. But no, it was not. Is there no end to this?
I am thinking hard, and …. no. I can’t find an excuse for M$FT Windows 10 decision makers. Yes, I have read good posts for grown ups on this issue, but still I am not able to think of an good reason for this kind of thinking. Can you?

I am doing my best not to get fed-up. But this bellow is a fundamental confusion. Not a strong delivery.
Rant Reason Explanation (RRE): Windows App Store has no reason to be hidden from anyone NOT having Microsoft Account. Technically one needs to login with Microsoft Account for the purpose of App installing and arriving to her desired machine. But this has nothing to do with browsing through the shop. This is like asking for a possession of a valid credit card on the entrance doors, not at the till.
Thinking of which, this is standard practice for M$FT wherever you see the “FREE” sign above the entrance doors to any of the M$FT virtual kingdoms. Like Azure fore example. IT is all free, as long as you provide a valid credit card beforehand.
And the key point: This kind of fundamental solution and decision makers “thinking” that must have been done behind it, is now apparent, after the new OS is “delivered”.
