Nna Meeen! Wetin dis pipul dey try do here,

I will give you an analogy of what you are trying to do:

When the ancient men wanted to build the Tower fo Babel that can reach Heaven, God simply stopped them by multiplying their language.

If you attempt what you guys are suggesting here, Bill Gates will Run you down!

Microsoft has enough money and Brains to outwit even a company of all other programmers teamed together to fight him.

Try another idea, I am afraid this is way too risky for you!

Yo! The step is application-software not an operating system. Microsoft didnt build the Windows check the report on The GUI Confrence held at california 1999, send me your e-mail address to receive it, they only modified what the earlier proagrammers at seattle at built. Now the monopoly Microsoft enjoys is due to Apple's Macintosh mistake; The Company had just built a wonderful and first of its kind GUI OS- The Macintosh- then they fired Steve JOBS and refused to license the system to independent hardware makers. This cost them because Uncle Bill just moved with in his team and copied the whole thing and started licensing it, that was how their focused changed to the OS industry.

To challenge microsoft we nid to span across multiple OSes not just build a new one. Why is java still better than vb.net, because it serves a hosts of operating system. Think Possible and act possible. My Team would be going on launch January 12th next year, just watch out for what we have. We are not deciding to build OSes but applications, applications that challenge what OSes do. Imagine accessing your Home TV, Home kitchen etc from your office through your Home 2.0 application, it is just imaginations away.

Peace!!! I am still watching this thread

Yes ! If you believe, you will achieve it. Let's plan it, and have it started.

Let's think of how to get the interested people, individual contributions.

Hi, to me this is a very good idea, but many peolple misunderstood the concept.

It's not about pulling microsoft, but challanging the company.

For those that loss hope, remember that a rome was not built in a day. It's not when Bill Door or Gate started that he becomes what he's today.

Suppose people like Charles Darwin thought as many people think here, He won't have come up with THEORY OF EVOLUTION.

I don't give a damn!

We can do better!

Wish to join the team 08060678106, bigstar4sure@yahoo.com.

When we make it, all the doubting Thomas will surely come our way.

Funny, Even Google is still trying to beat Microsoft at it own game.

If you want his software army  thing to work, I think we have to get through some issue.

Issues I see.

Can we even agree on what to build?

What programming language?

Who is going to lead?

can you devote enough time?

Who is going to finance it?

how to deploy it?

etc,

i av enjoyed all the post u guys sent in but the fact remains that bill gates is not a super programmer but a super business man. Now i am looking at it form both sides: through the programming and business aspect. My main aim is not to bring bill gates down (HE IS ONE OF MY ROLE MODELS). I want to build an application-software company that would put nigeria on the software technology map and match microsoft applications. You nid to read the recent speech by the Head of Microsoft West Africa during their recent search for more partners; "Microsoft wants to be the only competition in West Africa". Now thats annoying to me, and i wont let it happen. My team; Ephod Software Systems would stand and fight this good war and we have started. Fil free to hop in. Our Company Focus is simply irresitible.

hello guy if we say we want to beat MS that will not be possible. the only way is to write a OS that is independent lets say like LINUX its independent on its own so if we say we wanna beat MS GUYS we are in big poo cus MS has alot of hot stuffs (GUYS) who are crazy (that the way i put it) so there is no way we can beat MS down so just think of a way 9IJA can have its own OS then we encorage them to use it thats all

so lets get our own OS nd encorage oda 9ija 2 use it

I think the project is doomed from the beginning.

When Gates started his company he was not out to destroy any monopolies that existed at that time (IBM,LOTUS, e.t.c). He had a vision, a revolutionary product  and excellent marketing. Even though he was laughed at, he changed the world of computing as we know it.

Dreams are good. You should chart your own history and path, create your vision for the world and what you would like to see and then put an army together to achieve your objective.

Only then would you bring about the downfall of Microsoft.

Am Abul by name, I stay in ABuja

I just came back online after many months absents.

i have been reading many reply concerning the posters view. soft army is a nice idea, although it wont be easy but it is possible.

well we dont need to start saying embarassing words to each other because we want to contribute and amake people see reason on our own view of the matter.

well or ur information, even the founder of microsoft is a destroyer, he destroy some one to stand. i.e he came our illegitimately and now we all see him as a ligitimate man,and if u want to bring anythng that concern him, many people believe u cant succed.

well as for me, it is not about bringing microsoft down, it is about creating some thing better, even if not better than microsoft product, but atleast let the product be effective and with that u can compete with him. that will make microsoft think and know there more thing to come from Nigeria. i swear if we can come out something that will compete with microsoft product it is a welcome ideal.

plz let all come together instead of critisizing the poster, lets think possible because nothing is inpossible.

plz i will want us all to to join the army soft and think possible. including those who believe its not possible, plz start thinking posible, because even microsoft think possible b4 starting and now he his a mega possible person, so let think, that what programming is all about., thinking, imagining, and no not jst about u, but about us, let think together, lets creat it together, let show the world we gat something.

But Note, It require alot of fund and time.

Plz Let One love keep us together.

Are you mad? How can you pay such a fees for a 2-3 week course? You must be gullible. Most of this institutions has a prerequisite for their course. They assume you to have knowledge of the course. If you do, why don’t you study yourself? It would be nice if they help you get a job after successful graduation.

I don't know the tuition fees for Nigeria University but if you study BSc Software Engineer for 3-4 years, I am sure it will not cost you that much. Anywho, how do you suppose to understand software Engineering for 2-3 weeks? You must be a Mathematician to grasp that quick.

Certification of any exams is online; if you know your stuff just book for the cert yourself online. Besides, must of these institutions do not provide a pathway into employment, they only promise to help you find jobs with a CV workshop and your 1.5 Mill is gone. Good luck, maybe I should come back home and open an IT academy. I am really thinking of it now.

HI GUYS,

Does anybody know anything about this APTECH CERTIFIED COURSE Software Engineering Course. Though the cost of running the course is still moderate that is (1.5Million Naira), but does it worth the price,

Yo! Av quietly watched the replys on this post for the time being and to say i av laughed a lot just to see peoples reactions when MICROSOFT is mentioned. Seriously i see no difference between Bill Gates amd LORD Voldemort, just look at how he almost took Netscape Communications out(Read Netscape Time by Jim Clark & Om Edwards.) He is also quoted to have said "if i can push a button and blow up the internet i woud do it with joy", just because he dosen't av control ova the intenet like he has with desktops. I hope he neva finds the button. So what do you call that monopoly or friendship. Note : No hard beefs towards Uncle Bill

I beg to differ a little bit, your piece is great, but Windows Vista is not so reliable !!!

anyways, perhaps the poster thinks the usual application developing is not different from developing an operating system,

he should go learn how to code Processes and Threads and the maybe then would he realize how great the Microsoft guys are

THE ANSWER IS OPEN SOURCE

Foolish! OPEN SOURCE MY Bottom!

who among you is realy a programmer. For your info, if you think you have what it takes to beat microsoft why not go ahead and prove it. why must you come to a forum and ask people to join forces with you to kill them.

programming entails engrossing and soacking yourself in deep thinking in order to make things happen. A noise maker can never be a good programmer. a good programmer must always make a difference.

Its not about conspiracy. Its about ingenuity.

Remember that if you come out with any software that is ground breaking now, even the so called microsoft will do everything to employ you and give you every support you need to make it better. Don`t you know that microsft has employees?

There are numerous area in programming which needs attention.

If any body can come up with good software on voice recognition/ speech generation that person will surely turn out to be the richest person to come.

If you want to use linux why dont you go ahead and enjoy it?. why cry when somebody else use 'worse' thing?

WINDOWS is the best thing ever to have happened to computer. Its fast , intelligent, reliable, secure, enjoyable/entertaining, easy, versatile, and friendly. Indeed it made people love computer and created a reliable platform for ordinary business to tap the power in computers.

The inspiration we get from Windows XP will help us develop even more powerful programs. But that will mean a very xtensive research and knowledge which this consiracy will not bring.

The ingenuity that can produce anything better than widows can never go unnoticed. why not show something to the world?

As was previously mentioned, Linux and open source software are very viable alternatives. But you should understand that Microsoft is involved in many other business activities like their Office suite, MSNBC etc. Besides, I don't think building a business on a vision like "Let's take down Microsoft" is a good way to start a business.

it's a big project that is achievable but it's going to take a lot of determination,passion and resources.

hence I dont think motivation should come from trying to break microsoft's monopoly, coz another coy might come up 2moro and spoil M$'s monopoly so what happens to the vision and passion.

But I think our passion should be fueled by a need to change the IT world and leave an indelible mark.

Hey Fellas!

Thats a good idea from the poster. Afterall monopoly is what makes a company thinks they can do any thing and always get away with it.

There is a BUT! You wont pull somebody down to make history or acomplish a task.

Microsoft already has a substitute. If today all of us want to let Microsoft go down by itself (not pulling them down) we'll just kiss windows goodbye and use more of the UNIX family OS like Linux. It's as simple as that. No pulling down, no angry emotions, just switch to LINUX and develop your software in Linux.

That is all. I guess the poster will do well if he thinks on recruiting a brigade of Open Source enthusiasts in our Community. In fact we can have something like Linux User groups as they have around the world.
