Windows 7: Windows metrics source lies about identity

Windows metrics source lies about identity

Craig Barth, the chief technology officer of Florida-based Devil Mountain Software, a company that makes and markets Windows performance metrics software, is, I have discovered, nobody. He doesn't exist.

Barth is, in fact, a nom de plume, which is a fancy, French way of saying "alias." The real man behind the curtain is Randall C. Kennedy.

And how, exactly, am I a fraud? Because I used a pen name when dealing with an overzealous reporter? What about the IDG cover up? You don't really believe that they knew nothing about this, do you?

For the record, I informed InfoWorld Executive Editor Galen Gruman of the "ruse" over a year ago. I told him it was necessary since the "shock jock" content they were encouraging me to write was tarnishing my own image and made it impossible to produce hard research content at my own xpnet.com site.

Hence the decision to use the name Craig Barth, which technically is my name - my middle initial C stands for Craig, while Barth is an ancestral name on my father's side that I'm legally allowed to use. At the end of the day it's a "mountain out of a molehill" type of scenario - no data was ever fudged, no conclusions skewed unfairly. It also reeks of Microsoft's meddling - shades of Will Zachmann back in the early 1990's.

They got to him, too, when he started hurting them financially. So, they wanted me "shut up" - what they didn't bargain for is the fact that I have no intention of rolling over. I will continue to collect data from our network of nearly 24,000 registered IT sites and report on the key trends I see developing across the Windows community.

I don't know if you are the real RCK, but you surely are just as egoist as him. You think you are hurting Microsoft financially by publishing troll articles? Give me a break. Don't tell me you have achieved what the whole of crApple and all the LinSux fanboys put together have not been able to do for 25 years.

As far as your article regarding Windows 7 RAM issue is concerned, it's full of crap. You have no idea about SuperFetch. Grab yourself a copy of Windows Internals 5 by Mark Russinovich.

One last advice, you can still recover from this embarrassment if you are man enough. The perfect example is in front of you - Tiger Woods.
