Wow, a European showing up to point out what's wrong with America. Thanks! Where would we be without you people? If we didn't have your constant sniping and criticism, we'd be lost in a sea of positivity! Thanks again for telling us how we're wrong. It means so much, especially coming from a European.

It's a joke. Laugh. Another nail in the coffin for the humorlessness of the Left - as long as it involves them as the butt of the joke. They're perfectly OK ridiculing the fuck out of everyone else, up to and including the point of cruelty. Most recently Rosie O'Donnell ridiculing Trump's son. How low do you have to go?

Less hours and more free time drastically reduces the value of your labor. Since MBA cost accountants figure overhead as fixed + variable costs it makes sense to fire you and overwork the other guy.

During the recession everyone worked 70 to 80 hours a week or 0. You just have one guy do the work of the laid off one or get rid of the secretaries and assistants or lead scouts and place the burden on the other guy ... And still expect same numbers.

Time is never reduced ever

Come on! Grandma tested it. Look Facebook loads just fine on her Acer. Go release server 2016 as we had 2 million testers and no telemetry of a single NIC teaming failure!

I know MS is bashed here often but server 2008 r2 thru 2012 r2 are actually Ok and .... RELIABLE. Yes you heard that. But without a QA department I do not know what to do when Server 2012 R2 goes EOL?

I hate being those old whippersnappers afraid of change that scatter the IT community, but with more Oracle like per core licensing of 2016 and this shitware with 10 I am afraid to move forward. If Windows 8.1 had a start menu for my users I wouldn't mind upgrading 7 to that when EOL hits soon.

But I will be fired if I deploy 10 or server in it's current state. I cannot have only 3 months to stop a feature update that breaks something??!! Worse cumulative security updates means I can't ever run legacy software and stay secure?? If one bad update from 2014 breaks a website ActiveX control I cannot have a cumulative update as it will break that control etc.

Time to think long and hard about my career as I will be fired anyway when I can't meet my 97.97% uptime required by my annual performance evaluation. Thanks Microsoft

Comment Re: Hyper-V??? on a desktop os? (Score 1) 117

No it's identical except for some tuning and server manager. Don't believe me Google turning NT 4 workstation into NT server by 2 registry changes. Or maybe that was Windows 2000.

Hyper-V has been part of Windows desktop since 8.0. Same core and everything from server. Only difference is lack of clustering, replica, and nic teaming.

Just enable it under add or remove windows features if you don't want to pay for VMware workstation?

I use it because VMware workstation sucks majorly on my Windows 8.1 desktop

Microsoft's own server operating systems cannot even reboot on Windows 10 Hyper-V without crashing, Unix runs fine.

Server 2016 is same OS base too. No thanks until MS hires a QA department back.

Joe Six pack checking his Facebook does not do the same QA for enterprise things like Hyper-V, PowerShell direct, exchange/outlook GPOs that all have broken in the past year.

Windows 7 and 8.1 run just fine

Well, the Left and the Democrats have only themselves to blame. We all know this, right? Voting for Trump was the last, desperate move of ordinary Americans whose backs were up against the wall. Hillary promised open borders, Trans-Pacific Partnership, more free trade, more H1Bs, more exporting of jobs, and everything the heartless globalist political class wanted. They were going to stick it to America and they were going to make it HURT. On November 8th Americans' vision of America was going to die, Painfully.

And why shouldn't they vote for Trump, anyway? Hillary was already a 93%, 98% favorite. At this point, what difference does it make? Go down in flames, with a protest vote. And then he won, go figure.

If you want to know how we ended up like this, please watch this video: "President Trump: How & Why...". It is a must-view for people exactly like you for how the level of political discourse got so low. It's by a leftist, so you know he's telling the truth and has been fact-checked. It's really sad what he's saying and it is all 100% true. Never forget this: Trump is all your fault. If you had just been understanding and wanted to do what was right for Americans, this would never have happened. It's going to be a long eight years and hopefully during that time you will discover compassion for your countrymen, but I doubt it.
