Never happen. Microsoft is stuck to Windows. Users don't want to give up backwards compatibility, otherwise they'd already have abandoned Windows today.
Microsoft isn't nimble or clever enough to do what Apple did with OSX, and they're too self-indulgent to move to Unix underpinnings the way the rest of the industry already did.

Microsoft will always be big, but they're rapidly headed towards irrelevance.
And don't point to this quarter's revenue as proof of anything otherwise; that only means their cash cows are still intact, it doesn't mean they're successfully tracking modern technology.

I think while microsoft hires overambitios people, that do a hard work to create software,

other companies like google hire 'lazy' people. 'Caus, if you're lazy, you need to get the job done with less effort. For that, you've gotta be smart.

Most probably smarter than s.b. who works his ass to the bone to follow the fishing rod with the sausage attached to the string to make it to the next release date.

In Israel, Google pays a lot more than anyone else, but they're EXTREMELY choosy about their workers. Most people I know didn't even try submitting a CV there because the demand for qualifications is very very high.

I know one person who works there. He's freaking brilliant - knows more about pretty much anything than pretty much anyone else.

I was too lazy to fill out an application for Google.

Google actually contacted me, unsolicited, for a potential Unix admin position.

I got one question wrong in the tech interview, and was disqualified.

Yikes.

True.  Word on the street is that Google prefers people whose entire lives are their work.  Not a great lifestyle if you've got a family you like to go home to once in a while.

The thing with Bill Gates talking about XP has made the rounds a few times.  It's probably authentic but you shouldn't read too much into it.

Oh, hell...that was the reason I left AT&T...I got tired of devoting my entire life to my damned job.

at least at google you have a good job.

If the job takes over my life, like the job at AT&T did, then I don't know that I'd classify that as a better job.

I mean the actual quality of the work and environment. Your job taking over your life isn't as bad if you actually enjoy your work and look forward to going to it.
I used to look forward to going to work at prodigy, and I didn't have a family to leave behind at home, so at the time, it was a pretty nice deal.

There is no job that would make it worth me spending more time there than I do with my family.  If the job requires that, then it's time for me to get a new job that understands that my family time comes first, period.

IF somebody offered you a ton of money such that you could retire in 2 years of killing yourself at work, AND you enjoyed the work, you wouldn't even consider it?
