Looking Back at the Real Story of Microsoft

Posted in Microsoft at 7:14 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Can you imagine...?

Summary: Let’s take a moment to examine what Microsoft was all along (since its formation in 1975)

JUST OVER 45 years ago in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Microsoft was founded by two men, one of whom is now dead, years after becoming a patent troll (a troll that is active posthumously, too).

“Gates is now a major participant in the “war on cash”…”The other co-founder used his powerful (well-connected and super-affluent mom) to left/raise the company from the ditch. He had already been arrested (and bailed out), he argued with his parents regularly (shouting matches and glasses poured at the face!), he had sabotaged computers on several occasions, and faced disciplinary actions for some of these deeds. Good luck finding media that still speaks about those deeds; he nowadays bribes a lot of the media to pretend he’s an economist, epidemiology expert and so on. Well, ‘Professor Bill’ never even graduated from college. He never did. As one Microsoft expert recalls, based on Newsweek (1994), Bill (descendant of a banking dynasty/family) had those things to say: “Banks are dinosaurs, says Gates. We can “bypass” them. [The Money product manager] is unhappy with an alliance involving a big bank-card company. “Too slow.” Instead he proposes a deal with a small–and more easily controllable–check-clearing outfit. “Why don’t we buy them?” Gates asks, thinking bigger. It occurs to him that people banking from home will cut checks using Microsoft’s software. Microsoft can then push all those transactions through its new affiliate, taking a fee on every one. Abruptly, Gates sheds his disappointment with Money. He’s caught up in a vision of “the transformation of the world financial system.” It’s a “pot of gold,” he declares, pounding the conference table with his fists, triumphant and hungry and wired. “Get me into that and goddam, we’ll make so much money!” Here is Microsoft in action. In just three hours, it laid plans to buy at least two companies, ditched an alliance with a major financial institution, opted for another and made major moves into “two incredible new worlds,” as Gates put it–home banking and sports entertainment. Another company might take months to accomplish as much.”

“Microsoft was all along about one thing: money.”Gates is now a major participant in the “war on cash” (trying to control the money supply) and having showered Mr. Modi with ridiculous and highly notorious gifts he now acts like his boss and implements this vision across India.

Microsoft was all along about one thing: money.

Engineering? Virtually everything was lifted from other companies.

This is a matter of public record.

Resistance against Microsoft is part of the fight for technical excellence. As history shows, Microsoft typically fights against progress and against technological advancement. After all, any such advancement puts in jeopardy existing monopolists (such as Microsoft).

Fast forward to 2020 and the media, already bribed by Gates for nearly 20 years through his fake ‘charity’, tells us that this college drop-out will save the world from a pandemic. A closer scrutiny of his financial record reveals him to be a pandemic profiteer, not an expert, an opportunistic and monovalent monopoliser rather than benevolent giver. If he has given so much, how come his wealth nearly tripled in about a decade? If he wishes to help kids around the world, how come he worked so hard to whiten the reputation of someone who trafficked kids for sex (about 2,000 of them per year)?

Microsoft is not a software company; it’s a cult. It started by stealing other people’s work (literally diving dumpsters or fishing garbage cans for other people’s code while projecting), it broke the law countless times, and now it's liaising with Donald Trump to steal other people's companies (like it did many times before; the tactics hardly vary).

We’re not dealing with child prodigies or geeky geniuses here; we’re dealing with a cult and cults cannot be tackled by conventional means. This cult's roots are deeply racist (white supremacy) and leaning to the right [1, 2]. Don't be confused about the current CEO's ethnicity. It is a bit of a decoy.

“Microsoft, the world’s most valuable company, declared a profit of $4.5 billion in 1998; when the cost of options awarded that year, plus the change in the value of outstanding options, is deducted, the firm made a loss of $18 billion, according to Smithers.”

The Economist, 1999

  3. Exploring the Relationship Between Red Hat and Microsoft: They're Barely Even Rivals Anymore

    The ‘older Microsoft’ (serial monopolist IBM) bought Red Hat, but evidence shows that one would be wrong to assume Red Hat really competes against Microsoft (any more than Novell did; there’s a strong relationship)



  4. Microsoft Lost More Than 15 Million Web Domains in One Month!

    Microsoft's presence on the Web is being reduced to ridiculously low levels; sooner or later Microsoft will turn from 'king' of parked (unused) domains to master of nothing

    Unfortunately, GNU/Linux (especially the latter, Linux) embraces bloat and anti-features in pursuit of sales (appeasing large corporations, not users’ needs), reducing the modularity, reliability and productivity of computer systems in the name of helping “dumb” users (they keep telling us people are very dumb and those who disagree are “elitist” and “extremist” or even “neckbeards” — in effect insulting every person out there)

  14. Post-Coronavirus Linux.com Became Nothing But a SPAM Site

    As per the Linux Foundation‘s very own brochure, scripted and fake ‘interviews’ are to be produced and then edited/negotiated (before publication) with the sponsor… in Linux.com as the platform. This is corruption (or marketing, one might call them de facto ads presented as fake ‘articles’).



  15. Erosion of Free Speech and Tolerance of Opposing Viewpoints in Free Software Communities

    The concept of free speech is being reinvented by oversensitive people who nowadays expand the list of exclusions/exemptions (from scope of 'permissible' speech) to politics and criticism of large and highly abusive corporations

  20. Git is Free Software, GitHub is Proprietary Trap

    More and more people all around the world understand that putting their fruit of labour in Microsoft's proprietary (but 'free') prison is misguided; the only vault they have is for human beings, not code



  21. Daniel Pocock on Codes of Conduct and Their Potential Dangers in Practice

    In Debian we’ve already witnessed several examples where Codes of Conduct, if put in the wrong hands (in the Linux Foundation it’s corporate hands), can achieve the very opposite of their intended goal and its a true shame as well as a travesty for legitimate victims of real abuse

  23. Reminder: Vice Chair of the Linux Foundation's Board is an Oracle Executive Who Used to Work for Microsoft

    The Linux Foundation issued statements to the effect of opposing Donald Trump, but its current leadership (people from companies like Oracle, Microsoft and IBM) is a strong proponent of doing as much business as possible with Trump (even in violation of international law)



  24. [Meme] How to Hijack Linux and Free Software to Make Them Proprietary and Microsoft-Controlled

    Intel keeps outsourcing almost everything (that's not proprietary with back doors, e.g. ME) to Microsoft's proprietary software prison, known as GitHub; to make matters worse, Intel now uses the Microsoft-hosted Rust to develop in Microsoft servers, along with Microsoft, code that promotes Microsoft proprietary software (e.g. Hyper-V) and non-standard 'extensions'.



  25. DDOS Attacks Against Us Lately

    (Distributed) Denial-of-service attacks or DDOS attacks have slowed down the site, but we treat that as evidence of suppression and fear (of what's to come and what was recently published), or accuracy (in reporting) rather than inaccuracy



  26. [Meme] Windows as Dead Man Walking (Patches Accelerate the Death)

    Microsoft is squeezing whatever life is left in its “burning platform” (which is already exceeded in terms of market share by Android) that has a "burning" (bricked) WSL with barely any users and plenty of critical problems



  27. We Let Them Get Away With Murder, But They Make up for It by Banning Words

    The Microsoft propaganda machines (notably ZDNet this weekend) are busy portraying Microsoft as a “good company” for censoring words, never mind the actual, meaningful, substantial actions of Microsoft, which is boosting authoritarian people who imprison even babies (for the ‘crime’ of being on the ‘wrong’ side of the border)



  28. High-Profile and Invalid (Invalidated) European Patents Harm the Presumption of Validity of European Patents

    The EPO's 'printing machine' (over-producing patent monopolies) is harming the legal certainty associated with such patents, helping nobody but deep-pocketed monopolists and law firms



  29. Epitaph for (Death of) Patent-Centric Media: Litigation Giant Bird & Bird Nowadays Doing Ads as 'Podcasts' in Think Tank Site 'Managing IP'

    Publishers don't hesitate and openly revel in taking bribes as if it's a badge of honour or importance, allowing themselves to be profoundly corrupted in pursuit of quick cash; we discuss what's happening in sites that pretend to cover patent news (but actually drive agenda of litigation giants, to the detriment of actual innovators)
