Based some on going and some few past topics I write this entry here. I summarized some interesting topics that I read from here ant there in the cloud.
As we all know with the launch of Windows 7 (actually windows version 6.1) MS got the sensational hit again which it lost due to the Vista. (personally I don’t find that Vista sucked much but it is really a big fat OS) Another reason that why Vista was not accepted by the users was; MS thought the users are somewhat OK with high security controls in local networks. But really it was not the case. I remember when the launching of Windows 7 there was a blog post saying that Windows 7 will rock, because it is smarter and fool enough. I have another experience with an IT guy complained about the UAC system of Vista. It is really useful indeed and a good security protection. We have this in Windows 7 too, but some people still don’t want to have it. (here most of them complain because they do not know how to stop the UAC – but I recommend you to not to stop that)
Stepping away from the MS and you can see plenty of posts and news around the web about the Oracle’s acquisition of Sun and later part of the Java and mySQL. It was a moment that nobody thought that why Sun can’t stand alone. Of course Sun had the power and the strength to stand alone, but someone from the top rank decided to sell it. After Oracle acquired the Sun first all thought Oracle will bump on the mySQL and bang it. But it won’t happen. There are not any reasonable updates or new releases on any of the Sun’s products after the Oracle acquired Sun. What happened to JavaFX ? It was completely forgotten in the shadow of Silverlight. Now Oracle sue Google on Davlik (a JVM for Andriod). Where the patent rights go? What is the future of the open office ? But still Oracle keeps it competing bob – mySQL alive.
Java is an excellent platform which opened plenty of new trends in modern web standards. No body can deny this, but what is the future. I’m not against Java but the what does the Oracle buggers do? .NET needs a perfect competition.
Apache is funded by the MS in order to get the competition to IIS. (are you shocked ? but it is the truth Apache is funded by MS)
