How many businesses are suing Microsoft for putting out a wonderful
platform on which to automatically replicate viruses? No, the reason is
that managers get their free keychains and t-shirts from Microsoft for
going to their stupid seminars and believe that all their vaporware will
really revolutionize the world pretty soon, if only they choose to
invest hundreds of hours converting their current enterprise into
something that fits the active directory model, and in the process
paying excessive amounts of money to consultants that correctly answered
a couple multiple choice tests to get their silly Microsoft
certification. Its a free market, let them waste their money like that.
I've found some great deals on hardware at the auctions of companies
that really truly believed all that marketing crap.
