Comment: My schadenfreude (Score 2) 436

"Schadenfreude", German for "harm-joy", is pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others. And that's what I feel when I see Microsoft finally slipping. I surely don't have to list all the shit they've done before, but in this specific case: their trojan horse Stephen Elop destroyed Nokia from the inside. He killed the most successful mobile platform ever (Symbian), and the one that had the most future potential (MeeGo), to push the Windows shit that no one wanted -- all for the benefit of an external party, not the one who had hired him. (how the fuck was he not sued for breach of fiduciary duty yet?)

By all means, Microsoft, keep trying! Keep wasting money on a project without future. I hope I'll live to see you crash and burn at last.

Don't be irreplaceable, if you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.
