Microsoft has a ridiculously nice PaaS offering in Azure, but they really don't have any presence in the on-premises/hybrid cloud. They can put Azure in your corporate environment, but it's a very, very heavy lift - you can't just go download it and install it, though they have some limited subset of it that you can do that with.
This actually surprises me as they don't really have an answer to OpenStack and the other OS cloud stacks. Seems maybe they'll start getting more involved, which is a good thing.
Yes, I'm a Microsoft fan as I'm a
The best diet is probably a balanced diet of about 1200 calories a day. The safest way to avoid getting hit by a car is not to walk across streets or drive a car. The safest way to avoid dying via plane is to not fly, etc...
Who the fuck wants to live like that?
Rubbish. I also find it hilarious you posit that a law which gives women more options for leave is somehow sexist against women. Hilarious.
They are right to leave it at that - that's the explanation. Women can and do have babies and they are the only gender who can. Ergo they tend not to work as much or be as valuable to employers, and you are paid based on your value to your employer not what is "fair".
The competition or the ability/skill? You can put two toddlers in a basketball and they'd be pretty evenly matched, does that make it a great "competition"?
For example, compare records in speed skating - massive differences. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L...
Programming is a stepping-stone job into project, network, equipment logistics, and server management
Lolwut? You have it exactly backwards, unless you think "programming" is shitty web page writing.
The gender bias in professional sports *is* a huge problem
Rubbish. Women aren't as good at men in sports. It's as simple as that. It's not the oft-cited "upper body strength" either. It's everything. The more any given "sport" requires strength, speed, agility, power, endurance, or any other physical trait the more men dominate it.
So no, women don't get the same TV coverage, etc.. except in niche cases where basically they are hot. I'll tell you what - if you want equality how about we end all unisex sports. Make it so that women and men must all play in the same field of competition in all sports - let's see how that works out.
I for one fervently hope so.
Oh, not because this is a real or important issue. I find "diversity" studies in technical fields laughable. You can have more diversity in relevant thought between two white males who graduated from different schools than between a white male and a black female CS graduate. Race and sex are not equal to diversity.
No, I hope this works because I'm fucking tired of hearing about it. So very, very tired.
Lol. So it's cool to force someone to photograph you at your wedding when they don't want to?
Where does this end? What if the photographer is a sweet 18 year old Mormon girl and they decide their wedding will have lots of fisting and scissoring, and maybe some gay sex. Can you still force her to show up and photograph it?
My way is much easier - let people do what the fuck they want. If you don't want to provide services to a gay wedding, that's cool. Maybe they can find someone else. If you don't want to shoot photographs at a Christian wedding - more power to you. Probably some nice alternatives there.
