>A prime example is that CERN has enjoyed special conditions for the use of Microsoft products for the last 20 years, by virtue of its status as an “academic institution”. However, recently, the company has decided to revoke CERN’s academic status

what the fuck is microsoft's problem?

Uhh cern didn't invent the web
>>
>>71398004
Protonmail got outted as jewish spyware. Switch to posteo or cockmail
>>
>>71398128
prove it?

>>71398128
I legitimately use ProtonMail for like a year and didn't know this. Can you elaborate?
>>
>>71398004
>>71398128
>le protonmail made by cern scientists
The first post is probably a poor bait attempt, but to all retards reading this—just get posteo or mailbox.org or whatever else that doesn't shill itself like proton does and don't fall for >end-to-end encrypted meme. Just use PGP if you need real security.

>>71397906
I thought they moved to CentOS after Scientific Linux was discontinued?
>>
>>71398124
The world wide web, based on the concept of hypertext, originated from cern. Do not confuse it with the internet.
>>

On top of that, they keep promising to release the source code of Protonmail but never do. You can’t trust non-free software with your privacy.
>>
>>71398216
It doesn't really matter though because you can't know if the version of the software they release is the same version they use on the servers.

South Korea is ditching Windows too. Microshit is on suicide watch.

>>71397906
they rode MS' dick for nearly half a decade.
Those fucken germans wasted a shitload of public money.
>>71398108
what's CERN's problem?
Those niggers dropped all internal IP phones (remember $500 each) for skype phones.
YES, you read it correctly. they switched the always working voip phones, for useless MS crap.... and now they are backing.
I'm so fucking glad that MS raped those bastards.
>>
>>71398432
Now MS is going to get raped
>>
>>71398432
I am too. Fuck CERN. My only hope is they get raped again.
>>
>>71397906
wtf apple invented the internet!
>>
>>71398108
Lately CERN has found itself highly concerned with having a large enough quantity of vaginas within its doors rather than doing actual physics. Microsoft are just being based as usual
>>
>>71398558
You think this makes a dent in Microsoft's wallet?
>>
>>71398215
whats the difference between the World Wide Web and the internet?
>>
>>71399111
https://www.webopedia.com/DidYouKnow/Internet/Web_vs_Internet.asp
>>
>>71399072
Probably happening to many institutions. They want to push everyone to their horrific Office 365 botnet.
>>
>>71399111
The web was a mistake, the internet was not
>>
I'm having deja vu. Didn't this already happen?
>>
>>71399127
Okay, buh bye. Meanwhile MS is one competitor slip up from cementing their leadership in SaaS, their core business now
>>
>>71399052
That's true of all academia recently though, so you might as well eliminate the concept of an academic license completely
>>
>>71399158
Microsoft is a HUGE machine. Lots of mouths to feed. Trust me they're taking a hit on their SaaS costs for a similar bait-and-switch tactic.
>>
>>71398108
MS doesn't want baby blood on their hands.

Assuming CERN switch to linux then oh boy wonderful
cause actually that's the last thing gnu/linux needs, centralization and corporatism

Once microsoft/intel starts to crumble
soon they'll try to takeover the linux and risc sectors
>>
>>71399285
>linux will finally because a centralized, organized and focused product built to meet the needs of actual users instead of fat autists crying that people themed their apps
I love this timeline.
>>
>>71399365
RIP Terry btw
>>
>>71399411
i bet SERN murdered Terry
that's why we never got proper confirmation of the "accident"
>>
>>71398214
clusters themselves run linux, but desktops probably run a mix of MacOS, CentOS, and Windows.
>>
>>71399285
>cause actually that's the last thing gnu/linux needs, centralization and corporatism

Yeah, because then it might actually become a usable OS and not just a broken trophy OS for unwashed neets
>>
>>71399285
that doesn’t even make sense. All software under free licenses is available to everyone, no questions asked. CERN isn’t even that powerful, they’re a group of scientists for fuck sake.

No you're right, I don't think they'll be the number one cause.
What I am trying to point out though is the general trend away from windows and towards linux.

The web is an idea and set of user protocols for referencing and exchanging information in an interconnected web.
The internet is low level implementation which facilitates web protocols by interconnecting independent networks

Please fucking do. Those CIA niggers charge tens of thousands of dollars a semester to teach feminist dance theory, screw over hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people out of a decent education, and then they decide to build a fucking football field with the profits
And it ruins other fields as well. First thing any employer does is retrain you, because you learned fuck all in college

Let me guess - if Google, Facebook and others could use Ubuntu then why Cern cannot? They actually way too late for smart guys.

hint: all FB C++ crappy code assumes it is 16.04 lol

I suspect specific software is only available on Windoze. Stuff like labview can be run on Linux, but the odd instrument might still require Win drivers. That and crap like accounting or order management..

CERN scientists don't use windows. Please educate yourself before posting in this thread everyone.

iirc microsoft academic license at least used to be available only for stem fields.

No, they are not.
There are thousands of retards who are going to complain on their boss about the lack of windows, ms office, outlook, active directory which means that even if those cerncucks pull the trigger and go full oss, they will have thousands of idiots complaining about the different buttons on the libreoffice and knowing jackshit about linux.

He's going to be kicked off CEO and demoted back down to the nose picking low level tech support he rose from. Stupid pajeet. The absolute state of Microsoft.

Microsoft will make them a huge discount and they will stay. Happened multiple times already.

Just fucking watch.

It's basically a requirement for physicists these days to be quite proficient with unix, and know a handful or programming languages. Furthermore, most of physics is written in LaTeX.
So i don't really see this happening.

>Having to pay for your education
Feels good not being an americuck. I pay a small registration fee each semester, and nothing else. In return i get subsidized housing and full returns on any of my healthcare related costs.

If something is costly and bad, you don't make it free. You get it to become good

everything is a subscription including Windows 10 Enterprise now
YOu have those E3 E5 licenses for example
>>
>>71404713
Not really, because you can't know for sure what software they are running.
