microsoft and big innes

Mon, Aug 4, 2008

Microsoft seem to be looking into their crystal ball, to see what they can come up with to replace Windows. I have fond memories of developing for Windows, from 3.11 up to 2000, before I went “open source” with Java and unix. The name Microsoft have chosen for the next generation project is “Midori”. Unfortunately, that’s also the name of Big Innes’s favourite drink in Still Game. His missus has banned him from drinking it as it sends him pure mad radio rental! (mental). Is Microsoft envisaging the scenario below, in its future battles against open source, the internet and virtualisation? Perhaps they see these distributed technologies as the “neds” and themselves as Big Innes, out of his skull on Midori!
