After basically the whole #Microsoft #Azure cloud was hacked (see list of related sources on https://karl-voit.at/cloud/ ), the first follow-up incidents went public caused by missing containment actions: 60,000 emails were stolen from 10 #USA #StateDepartment accounts https://www.reuters.com/world/us/chinese-hackers-stole-60000-emails-us-state-department-microsoft-hack-senate-2023-09-27/ If you didn't understand until now: basically EVERYTHING at Microsoft got hacked and Microsoft can't (or won't) get rid of the intruders. Everything authenticated by Microsoft is tainted. Even #Windows auth.

You have to assume that any data online at this point has been compromised or will be compromised, up to and including encrypted information. You just have to hope we’re not on track to have publicly available quantum computing that can break said encryption or there’d be no point doing any kind of secure internet communication anymore.

You’ve listed a lot of good reasons why open-source for business isn’t used more frequently, and they’re all consistent with my experience as well. Are you familiar with any consulting companies / vendors who DO advocate open-source solutions?

I’ve been considering starting a FOSS MSP / FOSS B2B consulting firm, but I’ve consistently come to the same conclusion that the tech industry and business culture here are almost innoculated against open-source. If you know any firms that DO recommend open-source solutions I’d love to check them out.

Doesn’t Red Hat and the whole enterprise Linux space advocate FOSS B2B? I might be misunderstanding though

It’s amazing how everything they touch turns to crap. I’m surprised Github has made it this long.

Edit: After reading the posts, I am overwhelmed by irony.

Crap can still be profitable. Pretty much their business model.
