Another desperate, drunken-lurch by ‘gin-and-tonic’ Ginni Rometty to distract the market & investors and DESPERATELY cling onto her job for another year.
This is but a shiny object to distract.
Open Source does NOT command the margins that IBM needs — and got so used to, for over 70-years, with its PROPRIETARY systems, e.g., mainframes, 8100s, S/36s etc.
The market has changed, fundamentally.
Over the last 30-years IBM missed every single major market move. It let the likes of Google, Apple, Facebook, Twitter, NVidia steal the show.
Oh, and don’t forget IBM has its own version of UNIX, AIX — and has had it for 20+ years. It will take years to transition from AIX to a different flavor of Unix.
IBM’s days as an acquirer are gone.
IBM needs to be ACQUIRED by the likes of Amazon or Google.
This is so stupid, pointless and childish. This has been now going on for 40-years and we have only been Independent for 70.
But, here is the IRONY.
Sri Lanka is still a third-world country and you expect histrionics from the likes of it. But, compared to Donald Trump, and the totally mockery he is making of the U.S. Presidency, this does not look that bad. If anything it is still MORE civil and constrained compared to the carryings on of Trump.
So, I no longer can tell my dear compatriots — and in many cases contemporaries — to grow-up and act us adults.
I live in a country run by a buffoon with a mental age of a 9-year old!
Start here for a large COMPENDIUM of “Red Poppy” information
— history, significance, traditions & photos.
This post kicks off our 2018
Poppy Day/Remembrance Day Commemorations.
Realized that this would be of interest to some of you.
They haven’t been downloaded as much I would have expected.
So, I am letting you.
Happy Halloween. Cheers.
