There's all these tools to develop apps for iOS on Windows machines, but they still require a licensed Mac hooked in the network to finish the job. It was great when we could boot Apple's OS on the same machine as Windows. bye-bye.

We (not me) decided to highlight Sharepoint. Developing for it sucked, until I discovered I could write apps in Silverlight for it, until Microsoft dropped that. bye-bye.

Now, Microsoft introduced .NET Core. Rewrite all the code for Core, I'm told. But, whoops, RDLC not supported for how long. So, third party. Doesn't work because it's written in Core 2.0 and I'm writing in Core 3.1. But now they've got .NET 5 to write to. More stable, I'm told.

I'm considering going back to FORTRAN and COBOL and punched cards.
