is m$ really this crazy

I was reading something about .Net and came across this.
It's hilarious how M$ can commit a blunder like this ??? ...Though I don't have much exposure to databases and all ..still I understand the importance of encryption of passwords!...It's hard to believe how M$ can't undersatnd it ?

That was all 'bout M$ bashing some personal stuff.
I left for delhi on 22nd night and came back a few hours ago. I was there for a conference called PANIIT was really great and I enjoyed it a lot. It was not only the free food but also the exalirating experience of meeting the CEO's of chevron-texaco , bharti and headstrong !(yes I met em all ) ..
enof for today

iTunes rockz ....

iTunes is a cute little software by apple people... this one software is great to say the least!
Just install it and there you go!
Searching , rating music , sharing music , multiple playlists ,radio (hundreds of 'em) , listen to music from iTunes music stores (buying music fron India is still ot possible) name it and they have it. It even counts number of times a song has been played,. And a sorting of songs that will blow you ove. Whats better here is the low ram and cpu usage.
It is one software that can be judged as the best software for desktop pcs.

on a very sad note

munh ki baat sune har koi
dil ke dard ko jane kaun
kaun aavaazon ke baazaaron mein
Khaamoshii pahachaane kaun

may be a topfied line ...but this is exactly how I feel.
desperately missing some good friends

Finally I got my gmail account today.well I was a bit disappointed to see that it used activex components and one cant access it from opera and most of the other ppl have never done this y now ? may be because most of the world uses internet explorer....(92% of the connected world is on windows with only 1% on linux) so what is the use of standard compliance...
??? (source of this info is
linux may be a free operating system with good features but sometimes I feel it's worthless to spend so much time on linux ...afterall it's just another operating system which happens to be free ...but is it really ? linux does take up a lot of time to get fimiliar and configuration is difficult ...also the human interface is much weaker in linux than in XP ...hardware support sucks on linux and games are non existent ( i m not talking abt arcade stuff)...I installed linux on my system and for first few dayz it worked like anyhting the one fine day the network just went off ...i tried everything from googling to reinstalling the whole thing ...but nothing works ...believe it linux has not matured as a desktoiop system yet and by the time it does it would be just too late for it to become a operating system for masses..
