Ballmer + Inquirer - New comment on Compensatory Arrangements of Certain (Microsoft) O....

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Compensatory Arrangements of Certain (Microsoft) O...":

Here. Also, in an unrelated interview Mr Ballmer pointed out that he really hates the company and is working on an action plan together with senior management to "take this sucker down". Sources inside the company claim a negative stock price would not be unlikely.

Proof, I tell you, proof! - New comment on (tap tap tap) Is This Thing On?.

Dare Obasanjo has left a new comment on your post "(tap tap tap) Is This Thing On?":

>3 engineers at Google took WebKit and built Chrome in 2 years.

Yeah, right. Go read instead of spreading Google fairy tales and straight up lies.

Chrome is the outcome of FOUR acquisitions, building on existing Open Source code (WebKit) and poaching key people who were already working on Firefox or Camino.

It shows some cluelessness about software development to believe that Chrome could have been built by 3 people in 2 years. More proof that lots of people posting on Mini-MSFT don't work at Microsoft given how little they know about how actual software development works.

(All fine until you felt like crapping on the commenters once again. Third rail now.)
