Nobody gets fired for buyng Microsoft

Friends of the nhs

The nhs (my blog) is seen as a nice gravy train by firms like Oracle and Microsoft where there ‘products’ are not up to the job

Microsoft email is thoroughly shit there is the classic story of the large email list in the nhs that if anybody replies to all costs about ¬£300,000.00 per email due to some ‘bug’ in exchange.

Ransomware is the latest find that exploits Microsoft failure to not defend against but since the exploit was known by both gchq and the nsa (my blog and not passed on you could argue that the government is ransoming itself by keeping mum.

I am not saying there is a perfect solution even assuming that this was not an inside job but it points the failure in any reasoning that Microsoft is enterprise software.

Since it is so insecure perhaps the people who buy Microsoft products should be given medals and awards by governments for allowing mass interception of data.

I am sure the management of the nhs would like that
