Windows 11 Pro Will Soon Require a Microsoft Account

One of the key difference between a Home version and Pro version of Windows is being threatened by Microsoft. It appears Microsoft is happily thumbing their collective noses at the IT and business communities by attempting to force them into this horrid model. The difficulty of provisioning corporate desktops is difficult enough and this will make almost impossible. If Microsoft wanted to provide another reason for corporations to eliminate them on the desktop, well this is a great one. It must be their intent because this is an incredibly stupid idea. But stupid ideas and ineptitude seems to be rampant at old Microsoft these days. When was the last time you were confident that a security patch would not destroy your server or desktop or virtual environment. Microsoft has lost their way and this is just another example of it.

When will the IT industry stand up and start to make Microsoft pay for their avarice?

New Windows Server updates cause DC boot loops, break Hyper-V

At what point does the technical and business community say enough is enough and start charging Microsoft for each and every one of their disastrous screw ups with patches? Microsoft can no longer be indemnified for their failures which end up costing their customers untold millions of dollars to repair the things they break with their poorly tested patches and flawed operating systems. It is now time to cause Microsoft the pain and suffering they are causing their clients. It is their OS and their products and their patches which are flawed and cause these continuing problems. Why should their customers be saddled with the cost of fixing their mistakes?

At what point will the world stop accepting the failures of Microsoft and start demanding that Microsoft pay for these continuing and never ending flaws in their software. The cost for companies to mitigate or resolve these issues just can no longer be solely the cost to the customer. It is time the world makes Microsoft pay for each and every security failure of their code.

The power of the Internet and of cloud applications is about to rewrite the book on entertainment and sports production. Read on to get a sense of what is coming. For years I have envisioned the ability for end users (read: sports fans) to be able to pick and chose the camera angles they prefer when watching a sports broadcast. This goes beyond that and is an opening for robust development and monetization of entertainment and Sports broadcasting.  Please feel free to discuss this with me.
