Our cloud provider actually gave us better results. Total downtime was 15 minutes for the past 2 years and that was because of a crazy carrier incident that occurred then.

The saddest part of this article is that the author is "embarrassed" to have a PC. Wait are these nerds going to beat you up?? LOL anyway!!! The mobile generation and the failure of Windows 8 did...

Skype for Business Server on premises will sell like hot cakes looking forward to the SKU.

Paul you finally acknowledge Windows 8 as a train wreck and I can finally respect you as a tech journalist again even though it took you 2 years to come around. Many of these features are useless...

The good: Microsoft has finally figured it out today's technology climate
The bad: 6 years behind apple
The ugly: This only sheds a light that Microsot's main "platform" is enormously...

Hey @ScubaDog, you can pay me 360K/yr and I will preach to the high heavens about how great Windows 8 is. But sadly you aren't and neither are you paying any other IT decision makers who's job it...

Paul thank you for joining the rest of humanity who threw in the towel on Windows 8. Some of us did that on day 1, it took you 2 years, a few books, dozens of articles and thousands of...

Paul thank you for finally bringing Win2k12 to the table. Win2k12 & Win8 share the same core which I think is the real reason for the crashes and not the updates to them. I doubt anyone was...

Irrelevance is what would have happened to the SNIPP3T app if it had been built for WP first. The Windows Mobile OS platform has already passed its prime, on desktop its not going anywhere but for...

Windows as a mobile platform was unfortunately DOA, and will continue to fail miserably until Microsoft actually creates a compelling product. The giving away product for free they tried with...

Microsoft proved that it is still a great software company with the good execution of Office for iPad. The process to create that success needs to trickle down to other divisions now. Can we all...

It is the companies that we work for that finances our trips to these events. If we do not need the advanced knowledge for the technologies we are managing anymore (due to Office 365, etc) then we...

Best explanation I've seen regarding these Office 365 changes.

Enforcing fingerprint authentication on a mobile platform is the holy grail of corporate IT security. This article is not complete without the mention of this most important enterprise feature...

Everytime I'm at the Microsoft offices (NYC) they are always taunting their surfaces but when you talk to their reps they always admit that they love their iPads and their spouses love their iPads...

Microsoft reacted to the US Govt telling users to use another browser because Microsoft initially intended to NOT fix this bug. I agree that noone with XP should cry about not being supported...

Noone is surprised by the success of Office for iPad. Not only did we demand it into existence but intense pressure from institutional investors forced Microsoft to get this right the first time...

The weekly update should be more focused around Win2k12 server as a flagship and not Win8, there's a supersite for Win8 stuff. I have many colleagues who are managers and directors of IT who do...

This is one of those articles that makes me agree with others that say that "Windows IT Pro has lost touch with its base just like Microsoft has done". There is no impact to the enterprise (as of...

This isn't news. Bill Gates predicted this when ActiveSync was first deployed in E2k3. Of course back then Microsoft's only concern was Blackberry. With so many other office apps options out there...

At a recent technology symposium a 'PC guru' tried to claim that iOS/Android are only app launchers but Windows is a "real OS". His words were then used against him and everyone concluded that...

iOS and Win8/Metro both were new and given a fair shake, one was easy to use and even grandparents do not need help with use and the other is the complete opposite. This is not biased or...

LOL- multiple comments as long as the article itself??? WOW!!

What are your needs? For starters I need everybody to stop freaking out about Windows. Secondly, Microsoft has to stop being...

Tuesday, February 4, 2014 - 15:54

Nice write up Paul, it reminds me of several of my comments in posts past. It seems that all of the Windows developers have already left and went over to Android & iOS. I can't remember the...

This seems like a serious cry for attention. What is powering the cloud is not the hardware as much as it is the software pushing the hardware to its operating limits. It would make more sense if...

YAWN, the state of windows right now has no relevance to an IT professional. PentonMedia really needs to filter Paul's posts for this update. CorporateIT is set on Win7 for the forseeable future....

And this is why Microsoft needs to stop the madness with devices and leave that to the experts. This surface nonsense trying to make the one universally perfect device is a billion dollar failure...

There is nothing or very very little you can accomplish with VDI that cannot be done within Group Policy. VDI in the cloud (a/k/a DaaS) is a far reach at best and makes no sense for streaming...
