re: MicroSoft's Recent Purchase of Skype for $8.56 billion in cash.
This is the best news imaginable for everyone that hates M$.
In 6 months; The technology of this company that they’ve just bought will be obsolete,
and M$ will own a 8_G$ Doorstop.
This was apparently noticed by The European Commission; As it has relaxed the requirements of the 2004 anti-trust order against Microsoft - The software megamonopoly no longer needs its behaviour watched by a full-time “monitoring trustee”
— In expectation that their efforts would soon be moot.
Any other company that has something like this, would develop it to keep pace with the industrial standards, but anyone that knows how M$ works, knows that M$ is incapable of Developing anything.
They Buy Technologies and then back engineer them to their lowest conceivable form.
M$ will be bankrupt in less than a year.
