This may come as a bit of a shock to some of you, but I really don’t like Microsoft.
Earthshattering, isn’t it? I mean, I spend so much time blathering on and on about Vista and the advantages of inane features like User Access Control, beaming over improvements like SP1 and its tendency to destroy hard drives outright, and gleefully recommending that my friends, family, and coworkers stay the hell away from Vista until the most insidious issues are quashed, or until Windows 7 debuts.
And as if a crappy operating system of a flagship product wasn’t enough for me to regard Vista as I would a plague-infested carrion beetle, the sales team releases something like this to help promote the product.
Almost makes me want to break out my cowboy hat and chaps. And by “break out” I mean “*head” and by “my cowboy hat and chaps” I mean “desk*”.
(Disclaimer: I have all the respect in the world for the things Windows actually does well [yes, they do exist]; the reality is simply that Windows doesn’t do a whole lot well that I find useful to me, thus I personally do not care for it. Do not let my obviously neutral opinion sway you from what you feel is the best operating system for your needs. And furthermore, if you ask me for an objective operating system analysis based on certain criteria, I will give it to you. Just be warned, if you’re too vague, you’ll get something like the above entry. :P)
