Actually I think he's Indian rather than Arabic, but there's no need to bring race into the picture -- Microsoft is an Equal Opportunity Evil Empire.

I don't care what race he is. I just want my f*cking start menu back.

I've been saying "cold dead hands" for a while, but with the aid of a coupon and some incompatibility frustrations, I've finally elected to upgrade my Windows XP partition to 7.

Linux Mint the rest of the time, still.

At least you're avoiding Vista.

For the benefit of the doubt let's assume it started as a partition but he now runs it as a VM pointing directly to a disk partition instead of a virtual disk file?

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.

Sometimes that's all people actually need. But it's not anything serious.

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.
