Parent article: The Skype outage
> Drawing conclusions from the Skype outage like it wouldn't have happened if the world was not running Windows is just ridiculous and a very poor argument.
and, unless i am missing something, one not made by the article. i just reread it because that certainly was not my intent and i just don't see where the article says that, or anything like it. Skype went down because of a bug in their software, at least according to them, that was *triggered* by the reboots.
i have my, relatively unfavorable, opinions of Microsoft, but i try hard *not* to attribute to them things that aren't their fault.
the only word that might be seen as an indictment of Microsoft would seem to be "monocultural" ... even that isn't their fault, though they have worked hard to make it true.
