If i could i would return the game to , its broken.
Going to play Urban Terror instead. Albeit not having as good anti-cheat there are still far less people cheating there. You do get a good dose of ass-whopping first but if you bite down you can rise in the ranks, very unlike CS:GO where the bots makes that pretty much a game of having the cheaters on your side or not.
Even heard people getting yelled at because they dont use aimhack. Go figure....
As you can see in this chart, Android is about to surpass Windows 7 as the worlds largest OS. Google is already the largest applications platform with its significant lead in the browser area, especially in private use but also taking names in the corporate world.
Google owning both search, browser and probably very soon also the operating system markets is a game changer. The mental picture i have is -"this little piggy went to the market" as Google slowly pry Microsofts fingers off of market after market. Google will not keep this market for themselves but gladly concede it to any up and coming entrepreneurs.
The goal for Google is not to keep the market but to free it for renewed competition. Anyone can take the Google browser and run with it. Same goes for the Chromium OS and most of Android. The parts missing is where Google does not have the authority to give it away in Android.
The only thing Microsoft has left is old cruddy patents and some patents it has bought off other companies, mostly failed ones. As such, it is pretty near for us old timers to compare Microsoft to IBM. They have lost their grip on the market, but continues to work in the shadows where people rarely see them any longer. The grip on standards etc is vaning and before long, gone.
But, what separates IBM from Microsoft is that unlike IBM, Microsoft has almost no research at all. They have some teams but almost nothing that is usable in the near term and very little is possible to get license money out of. So yes, they can make money out of patent trolling for some time, but in the long run they are more or less irrelevant.
My conclusion is that Microsoft wont even become the new IBM, and with all the whispers of strange accounting practices and such it would not surprise me if it got chopped up and sold in bits and pieces as soon as the money stops flowing in Because if true, such practices are very quickly discovered when the torrent of money that you can use to hide deficiencies. Just as in the Madoff case.
As such, i predict the time for real advancement in the OS sector is pretty near. Maybe IOT will be the catalyst as the demands on it are vastly different than the demands on a personal computer. It is also something that could greatly benefit from distributed computing and stateless OS. Interesting times ahead after the 20 year period of no development of the OS sector at all :D
With Google Chrome the browser being on 47% market share and IE on just 10%, anyone hedging any bets on Internet Explorer/Windows are either mad or just hates money.
Enterprise suppliers are slow in reaction but they are striking themselves out of the market if they dont adopt soon. There are still holdouts that makes IE/Windows only stuff but their days are counted. Sure they will have a market to tend for, but they are going the way of Novell, slowly dying.
