Hello folks. People who have already read this blog a few times would know that I often make posts against microsoft. For those who do not agree that M$ is bad, here is another example. It was announced on Wednesday in our college that Students can attend the off-campus placement program for Microsoft at PSG the next day. Initailly, many students were happy. But soon after came the eligibility for attending the placement program. This are the conditions
- Must be a certified .NET programmer with expertise in the technology.
- Must have expertise in all Microsoft technologies.
- Must have a CGPA* of atleast 8.
CGPA is a grade point based evaluation system and setting a minimum of 8 is agreeable. But the other 2 conditions are absurd and they clearly show how cheaply M$ behaves. It is well known that most of their technologies s***. And yet in an desparate attempt to propagate them, microsoft has adopted this new technology. This is equivalent to saying, to work in IBM, you must be a master of their UNIX or like to work at Ford, you must have owned and driven a ford.
I was really wondering if Microsoft will ever have a sane guy in their folds who would tell them that their reign has ended and that to survive any more, they must turn to open source.
