re: Is Windows 8 Too Risky For IT?
I have Windows 7, and I plan to buy a new brand machine loaded with Windows 8. I will give Windows 8 a try for about a year, and if everything is a ok., then, I will migrate! As for my computing environment, I do focus on Windows and Linux (Ubuntu). Each has its pros and cons. I am multi-tasking, and I get the best of both worlds, unlike some people who are so parochial in their thinking mode! Well, we need those people anyway. At least I can make money, either way! When it comes to writing GUI apps, I will always choose Windows environment. However, when it comes to writing console apps or especially database programming (Oracle), I will choose either one, dependent on the client. Database programmign is pretty stable, and not as radical as GUI. For that reason, a good programmer with solid PL/SQL (like me) can write for any platform that supports Oracle!
