  1. They have offered lots of people jobs. I fail to see your point, Roy, unless you are suggesting that I can be bribed by them, which is simply not true.


    • They pay you money.

      You then write nice things about them.

      You also ‘taunt’ Microsoft sceptics like Simon Phipps.

      Money travels a long way. It makes it harder for people to understand things that are no longer (given the cash flow) convenient to understand.


      • You are equating me taking money from MS for consulting services as me giving them a free pass. This is untrue.

        There are many things MS still needs to improve in, most notably parents. As I said in my post, they are not perfect.

        I am willing though to credit good steps forward in working on a more open and collaborative way.
