The essential guide to IT transformation

Apologies to anyone who has already read this - we have promoted (demoted?) this tirade against the cowardly Register to Flame of The Week.

From Craig Livingstone

I've read your articles for months now... flames, discussions, and all the rest. I'll bet you're bitter now, reading this on your puny iMacs, wishing the rest of humanity would throw intelligence to the wind and go the way of Amiga and the Atari computers. But, alas, the forces are against you.

What forces? Why, those of popular demand, of couse. Embittered geeks, your domain crumbling for lack of want rather than force, you rave against Intel and Microsoft... good luck finding an article showing the evils of Apple computer (a pale wraith), instead, like poor little victims, you attack that which has overcome.

Not that Intel or Microsoft are as pure as driven snow... but like the masses, you follow the old adage... "My leader has lied the least, less than yours, so thus my leader (yes, he is a liar, but still some less that yours) is not a liar at all. I will not rail against him. Instead, I will direct my thin, frail arrows against the one who lied the same plus one.

You make me sick. In a world full of products, you are unable to give balanced "information", because you are as caught up into a scheme as others. I can go pick any PC magazine I wish, and get information on the current products. But, beware those who wish to peruse Mac magazines, because, like you, they are so focused on pissing on the competition that they aren't even able to tout the benefits they offer. You should rename your domain to "Wahh.wahh.intel.microsoft.com." The register calls it like it sees it? What a lie, if Microsoft and Intel were removed you would flounder, or more likely, turn on AMD and Apple. Fickle to the last, your only cause is that of the least "popular" choice.

Follow the Dr. Tom's lead, at least he backs his voice up with proof, while you selectively pick your battles... cowards!! You are like a simpering reporter, on the skirts of the action, giving a cowardly viewpoint. Leave the facts to those who are in the real world, and do us a favour and stick to those facts and leave your worthless opinions to the mob.
