I really hate Azure with every fibre of my heart. Azure has really found a way to be the most developer hostile cloud environment. That's all I have to say.

Well you've said it a couple of times now ;) https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=34515850

I am entirely behind it being said everywhere over and over again :)

I’ll still upvote it every time.

> most developer hostile cloud environment

Care to explain why?

Have you tried resolving your problem by creating another cluster?

That's hilarious. Been there, been told that.

Compared with some other alternatives that exist on the enterprise space like IBM and Oracle clouds, I will pick Azure gladly.

IBM Cloud is really good. Don't knock it just because it's prefixed with the letters "IBM".

Try to use it for Windows development in containers.

That's not a problem with the specific cloud but the clear and obvious fact that windows containers are a fucking shit show disaster. I have a lot of experience with windows containers and there is absolutely no way anyone in their right mind should be putting any workload on this steaming pile of shit.

Network problems, DNS problems, no metrics exporters that work properly, stuck containers all the time, API timeouts, pain in the ass container versioning issues due to breaking kernel APIs. If you've ever had to attempt to get support on it either, you'll quickly find that no one at MSFT has any idea how the hell it works either. They literally just wanted the box to tick.

Also running docker for windows has made our devops engineers suicidal because it's the same turd there.

Containers running on Windows of are you specifically referring to running Windows in a container for the purposes that docker on Linux has?

Running windows in a container. Running Linux containers on windows is considerably less painful.

Many Fortune 500 disagree.

Citation needed. Particularly from their operations teams and developers.

Notably a lot of corporations are built on a pile of shit with an immense staff turnover. I know that having worked for multiple Fortune 500 companies...

See list of Microsoft customers paying for Visual Studio Professional and Enterprise licenses, that is your citation.

That doesn't make sense because I'm a VS Enterprise subscriber but we don't deploy onto windows containers.

I do some noddy VSTO stuff and write .Net Core stuff that goes into Linux Kubernetes on AWS.

What does 'enterprise' mean, and is AWS enterprise?

Google is your friend.

Nothing is working for me, Oceania/Australia.

Including O365, Azure, Azure Devops.

Ironically, their status page is down.

Meta refresh IFrame > JS silent fail status page

Hoping this is fixed by the time I wake up (US). Was just talking with some vendors today that it's Microsoft's world and we just need to adjust to it.

And since today early in the morning, chatGPT is out with "ChatGPT is at capacity right now".. related?
