A New "Vista" On The Horizon-Crrrrrrraaaaaasssshhhh!

No, this "Vista" is not meant to broaden your horizons. Rather it a "Vista" to whet your insatiable appetite for Cutting Edge Technology. Needless to say, Microsoft is telling you that you'll experience computing like never before:

That & a Mass Bay Transportation Authority "Charlie" Card will get you on the J Train at Marcy Avenue in Brooklyn. One would be taken over to the 90 Precinct on Union Avenue, where you'll be treated as an EDP & taken to Bellevue, where you'll be under guard & sedated for thinking that $1.25 will get you on a NYC Subway Line;

My idea of Microsoft's Cutting Edge Technology would be you, working for hours, to get your brand new computer(PC)up & running without the need for rather strong Adult Beverages, but this is not usually the case, as one would need Jolt Cola to stay awake during this process;

You start up your PC & call Microsoft with the Activation Key # & you're on your way, to hours of downloads of Security Updates & Patches. It is during this process where Microsoft wants to know the name of your 1st born child, etc+your bank or credit card # to be stored on their servers, so they can bill you for their mistakes & make little fixes which fix one thing & cause other things to malfunction. Is that usually the case with Windows?

The 1st Crash should be about 10 minutes after you turn the thing on. The 1st Virus, despite all of the precautions should be 4 minutes after you go online;

Microsoft likens themselves to the NY Yankees. It means they're big. They're also Crash-Prone. Need I remind you of Games 4-7 of the '04 ALCS & what happened there? Ditto, '05 LDS; Ditto , '06 LDS?

I believe that you all know what I think of The Yankees. To think that despite the '61 Yankees, that Freedomland USA, on the site of Co-Op City in the NE Bronx, outdrew the Yankees;

Let's Go Red Sox;

Let's Go Mets;

Microsoft & the Yankees Both SUCK!

you are so right about Micro-Slop Michael...:-)

But you forgot the part in their contract, after you give up your 1st born, where you have to acknowledge Bill Gates as the Anti-christ...LOL

Go Sox!

Luckily, I have an iMac, running Mac OS X(10.3.9=Panther), using much more efficient applications, which run rings around Microsoft Office:Mac;

Much of RSN-NY operates in Macintosh;

So, leave me out of any "New Vistas."
