It'd be a long commute from portland to anywhere that employs lawyers, so I wouldn't recommend living there.

Portland seems to have the best infrastructure for taking care of its homeless out of those cities.

yeah honestly seems like the best balance between striver/busy SF and boring/chill portland.

eitherway way, 40k seattle-based microsoft employees are jobless in 15 years when the company becomes officially irrelevant. good luck seattle.

windows will be done as a profit center in 10 years, and that's 1/3 their income. and no, but no way will microsoft continue to make the money off their servers or office products like they are now in 10-15 years.

yeah okay bro

people have been calling for the death of microsoft for years. People don't realize how utterly dominant microsoft is in the enterprise and enterprise cloud. If Windows fails they'll just become an IBM

... that's what's funny about it bro. i mention 40k because they have 40k workers in seattle, and when 40k high-income workers cease to be relevant in a city that really isnt that large, gonna have some interesting market effects.

microsoft has utterly huge cash reserves. it's more likely they'll turn into a version of ibm long-term: no longer a company everyone talks about but still a steady machine

Microsoft has something like 12 distinct business units with revenues of >$1B annually

Do you even know what the fuck you are talking about?

The company has a better long term credit rating than the US government

70 year old dude somehow has power to convince new generation of business leaders who grew up on google docs, dropbox, and gmail that they should pay 300$/head instead of 40/head annually for simple things like email, file storage, and office productivity.

am i saying this is going to happen tomorrow? no. legacy software is 1 thing. businesses reluctant to change are another. but the time will come soon enough.

If you think dropbox, google docs, and Gmail are anywhere close to enterprise level solutions then you are a dimwit

Office 365 is currently eating google docs' lunch

Hospitals and banks and the federal government are definitely going to upload all their shit to google

Top firms in Portland pay 100k to 120k. That's really good considering COL.
