> surprised at how many people think it's wrong or stupid to spend money on apps.

The problem is not paying for apps. The problem is paying to a centralized store that is tracking apps you are purchasing and takes money from both sides (customer and author).
We are supposed to be in a web era, but you can't freely download/buy apps directly from the author web site.

I obviously disagree with you. Anyway, here are some fixes to improve your knowledge of my native and beloved language:

Dégagé, con! Les français jamais pris la peine de parler anglais, même quand ils le savent. Et ils prétendent ne pas comprendre juste pour être maladroit, enculés.

Dégage, connard ! Les français ne prennent jamais la peine de parler anglais, même quand ils savent. Et ces enculés prétendent ne pas comprendre juste pour être malpolis. (I'm not not sure what you meant with "maladroit")

Reliable? In my experience, yes.

None of the free cloud service claims to keep your data. They always tell you that you must have a backup elsewhere. So cloud storage can't be used as your reference storage.

Sydrive is not different. From their Terms of service:

We strive to keep the services up and running; however, all online services suffer occasional disruptions and outages, and Microsoft isn't liable for any disruption or loss you may suffer as a result. You should regularly backup the content that you store on the services. Having a regular backup plan and following it can help you prevent loss of your content.

I come to /. to read content directly from the home page. Not to look at irrelevant pictures on the side of truncated text, with most screen space wasted.

We come to /. because the home page has that classic style that makes efficient to quickly read news.
Most of my "news for nerds" now comes from Twitter, more than Slashdot nowadays. I will much less reasons to come to /. if the classic style disappear.

    CustomerId : "ABCDEF012938487432112424242322426",
    AllowExtendedConfiguation: "true",
    IsMaximumLengthRequired : "true"

This is not valid JSON : keys must be encoded.

And it it inefficient to send boolean values as strings instead of booleans because that data type is fully supported in JSON.

        "CustomerId": "ABCDEF012938487432112424242322426",
        "AllowExtendedConfiguation": true,
        "IsMaximumLengthRequired": true

I'm working in France where the standard notice period for a skilled job like software developer is 3 *months*. This notice period works both ways: for the employee and the employer. If some party doesn't want to respect that period, the other party can require compensation.

So that zero days or two weeks period is so strange to me...
