    LinkedIn employees allow recruiters to annoy the fuck out of me. Should LinkedIn employees be proud of this?

      Half those recruiters are amazon recruiters, should you be proud of this?

    Nike employees are profiting from selling shoes and clothes in a communist regime that runs concentration camps. So doing work for the Pentagon seems quite mild compared to that.

    As a 15 year MS vet, I can tell you there just isn’t the strong leftist anti-military sentiment at MS that there is at some Silicon Valley companies. There will be some protest from MS employees, but it won’t amount to much. Everyone here knows how important this contracts is.

    The Pentagon has been using Windows for decades. Your concerns are a little late.

    MSFT has been in the business of war for decades. Who do you think is Microsoft’s LARGEST customer worldwide?

    "The business of war" 🤣 Paladin level illiteracy. You really think without defense this country is going to prosper? Go enjoy some beautiful climate in Mexico, or Venezuela. There you can develop your fucking paradise, with no guns, and no capitalism!
