Miguel de Icaza: Secret Desire To Head Windows 8?

,----[ Quote ]
| Miguel De Icaza is a known Microsoft supporter. 
| He is often criticized for his endorsement of 
| Microsoft product -- he was heavily criticized 
| for endorsing Microsoft's controversial OOXML 
| standarad.
| Many call him a traitor as he leads the Mono 
| project to implement Microsoft's new .NET 
| development platform on Linux and Unix-like 
| platforms. Now, Icaza returns, suggesting what 
| Microsoft should do to improve the next version 
| of Windows, rumored as Windows 8.
| He goes at length taking pains and suggesting 
| what Microsoft should do to improve. Wow! No 
| wonder its coming from Icaza, the long time 
| supporter of Microsoft.

Novell's de Icaza: 'People are scared of installing software on Windows'

,----[ Quote ]
| While de Icaza may be right that developers and 
| users harbor concerns about Windows, it's 
| unlikely the developer community would reject 
| the App Store concept entirely. Microsoft's 
| .NET Framework is popular with developers, and 
| Windows' mammoth market share will likely lure 
| in developers, even those concerned about 
| making applications run properly on Windows.

A Day to Remember: 23 April, 2009

| And there's another reason why yesterday was significant: Microsoft announced
| what are probably its worst quarter results ever:
| Microsoft Corp. today announced revenue of $13.65 billion for the third
| quarter ended March 31, 2009, a 6% decline from the same period of the prior
| year. Operating income, net income and diluted earnings per share for the
| quarter were $4.44 billion, $2.98 billion and $0.33 per share, which
| represented an increase of 3% and declines of 32% and 30%, respectively, when
| compared with the prior year period.
| Now, the global financial crisis certainly contributed to those figures, but
| I think there's a bigger underlying trend here, which is that the Microsoft
| money machine is faltering.


Microsoft slashes rates for temp workers, blaming bad economy

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft, citing the "realities of a deteriorating economy," will reduce by
| 10 percent the amount it pays employment agencies for many of its temporary
| workers -- and cut by 15 percent the target billing rate for future temporary
| work.


Microsoft reaffirms grim outlook for year

,----[ Quote ]
| Shares of Microsoft sank 58 cents, or 3.4 percent, to $16.63 in midday
| trading amid a broader market sell-off.
