seems to me like it was Lee that surrendered at Appomattox eh-- when I said Lincoln, Grant and Sherman should have kept the South under martial law from 1864 to 1900 I actually meant they should have kept the South under martial law from 1864 right up to now. That would take care of racists like you
Just imagine Windows 8 running on Ipads and even Imacs-- and Chrome books too- since the Chrome OS has proved to be a sickening dud
Drivel you moron drivel-- 200 million is pocket change in Redmond - even you with your HIV ravaged brain should know that
I cant wait to see Microsofts Office software running on all the competing OS's. In fact it now becomes a likelihood that Windows will be running on IMacs and Ipads as well as former Android devices. This is a grand new world
Today, Microsoft quietly announced a new service that radically changes that.
With the geeky sounding name of Microsoft Azure RemoteApp, this app is not a dramatic new technology.
In fact, it's a pretty hum-drum tech that's been available for years. It allows business customers to stream any of their Windows apps to any device (Android, iOS, Mac, Windows) over the cloud.
The change is how Microsoft will sell it. Microsoft is charging "per user" not "per device."
To unpack that: the same employee can use this app to access Windows apps on an iPad at home and on their Windows PC and Microsoft won't charge extra for that. In the past, Microsoft charged separately for both.
Microsoft is also using "pay as you go" pricing with Azure RemoteApp. Companies pay a set fee for up to 40 hours a month, then additional fees for each hour, up to a maximum of $23 per user per month. This is how a lot of cloud products and consumer services work, but it's brand new for Windows.
Back in the old days, if you wanted to use a Windows app, like Office, you had to pay a set fee for Windows for every PC you bought.
When new app streaming technologies were developed, Windows no longer had to be loaded onto the actual device. So Microsoft set up some new pricing plans to protect its Windows revenue. Companies were still required to pay Microsoft for a Windows license for every device that used Windows apps. This made it pretty expensive for some companies to stream Windows apps, and opened the door to cloud-based operating system competitors like Google Chrome.
As Microsoft sells more cloud services like this app, it makes money even if the device isn't Windows. In fact, the more non-Windows devices using Microsoft's cloud software, the better.
Microsoft's new CEO Satya Nadella understands this. So he's beginning to unwind the licensing traps that have prevented enterprise customers from using the cloud, even Microsoft's cloud.
This app isn't the first one to experiment with
Your soul is what is dead qeeretic- its as dead as any garden variety sociopath or psychopath. Your intelligence went with it too-- you haven't got a clue that Windows phone market share and development will be pursued with all the wealth of assets that Microsoft has and will eventually prevail over the Iturds and droidturds
I SAID Dixie racist and that's exactly what I meant--- an evil place where racism reigns supreme and you are one of its high priests except you aren't very high- Lincoln and Grant and Sherman should have kept martial law on from 1864 to 1900 just for starters
more "toy" software from the Microsoft wannabe's-- if its like Android and the GOOG cloud services we have seen before then you can forget it and go with Nadella!!
Youmust live in cloud cookoo land bub-- I would actually be concerned about your portfolio but I know that you can afford one.
but you simply belong here because you were here first and you are always pragmatic and fair-- is that it bozo?
As long as Gross and Net sales dollar amount doesn't count you might be able to find something- like the PS4 weighs twice as much as the Xbox so therefore the PS4 is outperforming Xbox--oh BTW I suggest you double check sales figure for those two systems instead of mouth off
crummy software?? you sound like the village idiot. GOOG is having to pay to give away their software because nobody wants it even if its free
Never forget the naysayers who howled and raged against Xbox to no avail when you get to trying to tell us that MSFT cant compete in mobile!! You sound just like them. You are trying to tell us that a Company that lives and dies with Operating Systems cant compete in mobile --what with its 100,000 technician employees, more than 90 billion in the bank and a sum total of experience that outweighs all of FOSS AAPL and Android combined?? GOOG and AAPL are going to lose big time here. No mass kiddie pop sentiment pushing Android and Apple will save them
wotobozo you mewling idiot you just swallow any propaganda rag's koolade hook line and sinker don't you-- and the lie that Torvalds invented Linux all by himself is a looonatik idea that I have mentioned over and over for you mentally challenged folks to read. Eventually Torvalds is going to have to pay for his little prank-- and you for believing him. As far as MSFT losing out to FOSS --that is a similar looonatik idea and with PC's and mobile becoming ever more powerful the need for the kind of proprietary software that MSFT produces will become ever more necessary to harness this power. Sux cannot compete in this world and that accounts for its minuscule market share in desktop and Mobile already today. The GOOG boys will not be able to hold their share in mobile with Android either. Except in the toy department
So where did you flunk out of the university economics program eh? Arkansas Silo Tech???? If you don't know anything about economics keep your yap shut and work with someone who does understand the science
hawfecies lets hope that as Obama begins to show his fangs to the pukes he starts doing something about the racism that seethes under the surface in Dixie-- maybe he will eventually throw you into a FEMA camp and cut your b.lls off
more psychotic lies from the hawkreep-- HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR
bozo after the EU gets thru with GOOG you will be glad you didn't have enough money to buy even one share HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR HAR
