This is a typical commercial pitch I would expect from MS or other corporate
drones. A bunch of meaningless buzz words used out of content.
Are you a sales person by the chance? What kind of crap you're talking about?
Why do I and our other engineers need 5 years maintenance?
What is a maintenance? Blow dust from our boxes?
Why do we need all these certifications if we know what we're doing?
What is "enterprise-class hardware" you're talking about.
We're designing circuits which used anywhere - from your cell phone
to jet fighters. You can make any hardware to be an enterprise-class.
What is "mission critical"? A nuclear plant or a ballistic missile?
Why reinstall every two years instead of simply upgrading systems to the next
version? What kind of bull shit is this?
I hope you're not on drugs.
