Creating a new user from the command line in the Linux shell:

useradd user1


Creating a new user from the command line in Windows PowerShell:

New-ADUser -SamAccountName User1 -AccountPassword (read-host "Set user password" -assecurestring) -name "User1" -enabled $true -PasswordNeverExpires $true -ChangePasswordAtLogon $false


Enough said.

Until you create some kind of batch file named 'useradd' that does all of that, substituting 'user1' with the first (and only) parameter.

But it's annoying, of course, that such a batch file does not already exist.
Still, if you want to do anything on a command line in Windows, you're in for some trouble anyway.

The fact that they built a shell and have started building "core" versions of their server OS (no GUI) was encouraging, but Real Computer People have, since then, been disappointed to find that the shell is unusable as an everyday maintenance environment because it's so byzantine, and what they really want you to do is install a set of remote administration tools on the desktop version of their OS.

These are problems the unix world solved decades ago, and largely got it right.

Don't use adduser, use useradd.  useradd will just add them with the login as the parameter (the account will be added as disabled by default).  Adduser is to "friendly" to be scripted well without some other hardware like expect.

I continue to maintain that every single installation of SharePoint in the world was a bad choice. The product is 100% superfluous.

Wiki: click what you want, read it.

SharePoint: maybe login works, maybe it doesn't. Navigate a bunch of superfluous menus. Find what you want, click on it. Instead of appearing as web page it has to be downloaded as an Office document.

This is progress? Why do people implement SharePoint? Because SharePoint.
That's about all I can see there.

Sharepoint should incorporate some Java applets to make it more robust :-)

For a while, work was planning to remove anything on the internal web which was not SharePoint.

That got skoshed, fortunately.

srsly ... SharePoint is a gigantic step backwards when it comes to online document management. It's basically just a file server with version control and a clumsy web interface.

Miguel de Idiot has always been secretly on the Micro$oft payroll.  Nat Fuckhead was actually an official Microsoft employee for a while before he joined Miguel over at Linux Sabotage Inc.

May the whole bunch of them rot in hell.

So I was wandering through a mall today, and I noticed that the Microsoft Store is an *exact* copy of the Apple Store.

Except for one difference:

The Apple Store actually had customers in it.

It's true. And as far as I can tell, it's true everywhere, all the time.
Microsoft must be losing tons of money on those stores. They're so desperate to become a hip consumer brand, but their consumer products are utter crap that nobody wants.

They've got a new CEO whose name isn't Gates or Ballmer. If he wants to turn the company around he should discontinue the phones and tablets, sell off the xBox division (which is still losing money btw), close the stores, and focus on making their productivity titles available on platforms people actually *use*.

The reason they group all of that crap into one business unit is so they can pretend to show a profit. That revenue includes the $2,000,000,000 they bring in each year by extorting Android device makers with junk patents.

Well, Microsoft has a bit of a problem.

They have this operating system to support that doesn't really require much by way of updates (as people's reluctance to move away from XP shows) but still costs them money to maintain. They desparately want to move into some other market that has growth, but don't really have the credibility to pull it off as their past gaffs have shown. Culturally, I suspect they're still resting on the laurels of their past achievements (Office and OSes, if you want to call those achievements... I suppose fiscally they are), so they aren't really thinking well about innovation.

So, yeah. I guess they try to enter a market, flail, then try something else. They have the money to coast for a good while doing that kind of thing, but eventually they need to pull their head out of their ass and do something useful for consumers.

I've been waiting for them to do that for roughly the past 38 years...
