I read today that Microsoft is now admitting they suck in a subtle way. It is about time they faced the truth about Vista.
Microsoft has reportedly begun offering a downgrade option to PC makers who want to allow their customers to have the option of using XP over the pre-installed Vista software.
I can’t help but think of these quotes from Douglas Adams:
“The problem with designing something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of a complete fool.” – Douglas Adams
“The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armor to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.” – Douglas Adams
Thanks Poem for these quotes!
On a personal note, I am feeling a bit vindicated. My laptop self-destructed last fall and I was faced with a choice, go Vista or go Mac. I chose to make the switch and leave the world of Microsoft for the new enlightened realm of Macintosh. Since then, I have never looked back (other than to chuckle at those poor fools that are still mired in it). I love my Mac.
