My Spin On All the Windows Vista Pooh-poohing

You know what, I think we Mac enthusiasts should just stop writing enormous novels about what Microsoft is (or isn’t) doing with the next generation of Windows. Not that Billy’s developers really pay attention, but in case they do, why should we freely give them so much advice about what it is that makes Windows suck so much? We get it: whatever Microsoft releases—whenever it is they finally release it—is going to be immeasurably bad. Case closed.

So, I say, let’s just sit back, laugh to ourselves, let Vista get released in whatever form it comes, and wait for the Windows users to hate it so badly that they have little choice but to seriously consider jumping ship. Windows developers don’t need any more free advice from Mac pundits on how to make Windows continue as a Mac OS rip-off.

What the !@#% is Microsoft doing with Vista?

Killing the Menu Bar, Of Course


And before the Windows community lashes out at me, please bear in mind that my comments are an opinion and not a fact. Maybe Windows Vista will come out and it’ll finally be in really respectable shape. All I’m saying is…I wouldn’t hold my breath.

Holding your breath until sometime in 2006 (Vista release) would be unhealthy (MAC or M.S. users alike).

I’ve been a Microsoft OS user from the start…*but*, I always keep my options open. Maybe this means switching systems the next time around.

Sadly, the business office environment is “Bill-Based”, and it will take “..a village” to turn the the corner. I’m on the fence… all I need is for someone to push me over. I’ve already given up I.E. for Firefox…so there’s hope for me after all, right?

Blog on!

What amazes me is how vocal some people are about how much they hate Microsoft, yet the majority of computer users are familiar with the interface and stick with it. Personally, I can’t stand the Mac interface. I think their iPod interface and iTunes both suck as well. There’s my opinion.
