The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

“…5 - Integrity That May Surprise…

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

S Korea to break away from Windows by 2020

South Korea said that it will move away from Windows in the future to avoid dependency on the Microsoft operating system, citing the fact that Windows XP is no longer supported.

In a government statement, South Korea said that it has upgraded its operating system to Windows 7 to replace Windows XP, but has no intention to repeat the cycle again in 2020 and consequently has decided to choose open resources instead, reports TechEye.

South Korea will invigorate a pivot program consisting of ten public and private institutions, the program related to employee education and the system paid for by the government. Apparently, South Korea is trying to support its domestic software developers.

This is the second defeat Windows has suffered in Asia after the Chinese government rejected Windows in its procurement project, reported Beijing Business Today, the biggest financial newspaper in Beijing.

The central government of China has ordered that no computers belonging to the facilities of the central government be installed with Windows 8. Meanwhile, officers have publicly encouraged domestic operating systems.

There has been report about the central government banning Microsoft Office as well, though Microsoft China denied the news. What is clear, however, is that Microsoft is losing its government customers, and very fast.

Its discontinuation of support and upgrades for Windows XP seems to be the main reason leading Microsoft into this crisis. Since its introduction in 2001, the now classic Windows XP has dominated the operating system market for personal computers. In additional to common users, Windows XP enjoys a huge amount of government customers.

Microsoft retired the thirteen-year-old Windows XP in this April so as to popularize the latest operating system Windows 8, causing an earthquake in business. Governments and companies spent quite a lot to upgrade to Windows 7, and many came to the awareness of the over-dependency on Windows and the future cost of inevitable replacement.

Furthermore, since the NSA's Prism surveillance program was exposed last June, countries and businesses have become much more alert to information security, gradually cutting their reliance on huge corporations such as Windows and Apple, and switching to domestic software.

Microsoft is in a difficult situation in the age of the mobile internet. On the one hand it has to deal with Apple and Google to transform to mobile market; on the other hand, its advantages in its core software are weakening due to loss of government customers.

Fortunately, there is still some time for Microsoft to rearrange itself. The empire of Microsoft will not collapse in one night, after all, and there are years to go before the arrival of 2020.
