Microsoft Trojan Horse Part Duex: System Center Operations Manager 2007 Cross Platform Extensions and Connectors
After reading a recent press release about System Center Operations Manager 2007 being able to “manage Unix/Linux”, the first thought that goes through my head is WTF? Who in their right mind would touch that product?
After thinking for a bit, I then realize this is the exact same corporate strategy Microsoft has pursued with Active Directory. Release a trojan horse into a corporation by making an inferior, arguably broken, operating system, Windows, that won’t work with anything else, or follow the same standards, and then release a steaming pile of bandages, duct tape, glue, and well…poo, and make everyone authenticate against it while charging an expensive licensing fee.
We have active bot nets that rival NASA in pure computing power due to boneheaded Operating System design, yet Corporate America should have Microsoft manage Unix and Linux. Ha, ha, ha, I am rolling on the floor laughing. For anyone has had the “pleasure” of dealing with Active Directory and the politics that goes on with that, I shudder to think of this product. May God have mercy on your souls.
Post Script: This is a FACT, of the 600 million computers on the internet 100-150 of them have been a part of a botnet at one point. These are primarily Windows computers. This is a complete failure by Microsoft of Epic proportions.
“Operating systems like Microsoft Windows, meanwhile, still made it too easy for criminals to infiltrate them, the experts said.”
