MS declares War on IT Pro’s #2

So, let’s review Microsoft’s actions as regards IT Pro’s, and internal IT in general:

  1. Killed Technet magazine
  2. Killed Technet Pro subscriptions
  3. Killed many IT Pro geared conferences
  4. Changed Technet focus to Azure hosted services- (have you tried a Technet subject matter search lately? Have you looked for tutorials lately?
  5. Is targeting sales to Management with sweet deals on hosted services

And I’m sure that is the start. After all, they keep telling us they are transforming to a services and devices company. Where does it leave internal IT and IT Pro’s? Better start sharpening your Linux/FreeBSD skills.

Oh, and Powershell? Stick with Bash and Python.

As always, I welcome your views.
