Congratulations to the NZ Government!

It is heartening to read that the NZ government’s negotiations with MS for NZgovt to fork out more money to MS for a licencing deal has failed spectacularly. I was hoping that something like that would also be a outcome of the, now faltering, SOE (Standard Operating Environment) project in Singapore. Well, who am I kidding? Portions of my tax dollars will go to Microsoft anyway because of how MS has cleverly structured the deal (or so I am told by sources). Even if MS is thrown out of the Singapore SOE, they will still get monies. Hmm. We need a FOIA/RTIA system here to find out exactly what sweetheart deal was cut. Obviously the sweetheart deal model did not work in NZ! Someone’s KPI is not going to be met! #fb
