Someone didn't get his bribe!
The only irreplaceable people have "president" or "vice-president" in their title.
Soooo... by the end of next decade they are building a Linux distro.
The trick is that it will only run a version of Microsoft Office and almost nothing else. it will have a packing system that reboots the machine every 15 minutes, and have it's very own version of gcc that has tons of undocumented function calls.
Suddenly you forget that any filesystem other than NTFS exists.
You can't write code that works on any other OS.
You bow down to the great shrine of Gates.
You're screwed. Totally screwed.
Yeah, but "it's only business" purposefully ignores the fact that these are people, people that have kids in many cases. It also overlooks the fact that these people helped them make money hand over fist. Yeah, they are selling shitty products to Microsoft zombies in a lot of cases, but they still are people.
Yeah... they make the company money. Nothing is owed to them. Let the fuckers starve. Welcome to the US corporate jungle, where you're not allowed up in the tree to get a banana while the monkeys in suits shit on you.
Welcome to the TRULY disposable workforce. Do your 18 months then they Fargo your ass.
Screw that. Every person without a trustfund or an executive job is "uppity".
WHO GIVES A SHIT!
Give them all the H1Bs they want for. Hell, give them twice what they ask for. Government is for the corporations, not the citizens, dummy!
Again... this isn't capitalism. Adam Smith talked about interactions among equals. Corporations have amassed so much power in the marketplace and in government that its far, far from that. This is the endgame of *corporate* capitalism.
You're forgetting the HUGE back-door corporate subsidy they get by putting workers on poverty wages and forcing them onto welfare.
This argument always comes from a corporate true-believer.
What a load of revisionist history B.S. Not a surprise no name was put with it.
So the asshole executives causing the problems are going to be let go? Celebration!
I use a linux desktop for all my day-to-day stuff, both at home and at work. The desktop environments are either plane jane or way overdone, but they are adequate for doing work and that's a lot difference than 5 or 6 years ago. Excluding the braindead acceptance of Office file formats for a moment you *can* do your everyday business on linux. It's that Office lever that causes the most issue, and being an admin that isn't really an issue for me, of course.
Watch your mouth. Broken microsoft products account for massive amount of I.T. payrolls world wide!
