Those who know me know that I have little love for Microsoft Windows. The platform is a special snowflake, and coming from a Unix background (real UNIX, not Linux, btw), every time I'm faced with Windows I feel like I'm in some alternate dimension where everything is a little strange and painful.
Yesterday there was a flurry of activity on Twitter, and in retrospect, it seems that some have come away with interpretations of what I said that are other than what I intended. Some of that misunderstanding is pretty unfortunate, so I'd like to set the record straight on a couple of items now.
Next week (Nov 18-22) I’m teaching a 5 day class on Cloud Performance, based on my book Systems Performance: Enterprise and the Cloud. I’ve taught this twice internally, and this will be the first class available publicly. I hope to teach it again, but one never knows, this may be the first and last chance to attend!
