    Love it or hate it : MS
    Love him or hate him: Rick Downes.

    Rixter needs some where to put his creative energy :eek:
    I love this Gonzo style: HST of the www
    And he does actually know what he is talking about: just seems he can hold a grudge for a lloong time.

    If you have a few minutes read all the links down the page.

    Love the "the Bill mini™"

    The topper is the e-mail: allegedly an accurate quote. ROFLMAO.

    I laughed at the article - "Ballmer: 'YOU STEAL MY SOFTWARE'", I didn't bother to read thru the archives. I read an article featuring SOB yesterday, in which SOB pointed the finger squarely at piracy rather the the real factors of Vista's early flop. http://www.arnnet.com.au/index.php/id;7680622;fp;16;fpid;1

    He and Microsoft are steadily pushing away their end users; interestingly Dell has set up a user request/feed back site, the number one request is pre-installed Linux by a very large margin with 37932 votes http://www.dellideastorm.com/article/show/61771 . Read the list of popular requests @ http://www.dellideastorm.com/popular

    Something else interesting if you plan on purchasing Vista and don't have XP or Win2ooo, save money using 'the "clean install" trick'. http://www.computerworld.com/action...eBasic&articleId=9011522&source=NLT_AM&nlid=1

    veets invasion
    ('Virus Engendered Extinction of Terrestrial Species')

    that needs to be produced as an X files episode
    better yet a Will Smith blockbuster

    :p


    its disconcerting that if Vista Sales are depressed because of piracy, but that half the illicit downloads are malware, and the legitimate half misses 47% of malware the story above might actually be true :eek:

    were is Will Smith when you need him :p

    (on the bright side we can hope rectal probing was part of the initial Baller\Alien negotiations)

    That's about one step past where we are right now. Compare Vista to the talking walls on Fahrenheit 451. How close does it have to be?
