When I attended the MVP Summit at Microsoft’s headquarters in Redmond last week, there was this moment when a simple truth struck me: Microsoft is sooooo different from VMware and Citrix and Apple.  Well, you may say that this doesn’t come as a big surprise.  Most probably you are right, but this time it’s forContinue Reading
