Just a month after saying it had no intention of opening a chain of retail stores, Microsoft has announced plans to do just that. The software giant announced Thursday that it has hired Wal-Mart veteran David Porter to lead the retail effort. Porter will report directly to Kevin Turner, Microsoft's chief operating officer. Porter, whose most recent post was head of worldwide product distribution at DreamWorks Animation SKG, reports for his first day of work at Microsoft on Monday.


Micro$oft Stores -- Yea, Right!

Dell has wanted to do this for YEARS. Yes, they are a Micro$oft OS vendor.

They had, and still have ONE store, in Dallas.

If Micro$oft does as well as they do with supporting the Operating System, they are going to blow a LOT of money, for no return.

Should businesses and organizations require staff to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination before physically coming to work?
Yes -- At this point it makes good sense and will help stop the spread of the virus.
No -- It sets a bad precedent against personal privacy and civil liberties.
I'm Not Sure -- There are valid arguments for and against vaccine requirements.
