ok...it's friday...and i'm 2 hours away from beer o'clock..so
i've noticed that alot of ao'ers have sigs like mine...slamming our fav corp behemoth...
so...let's seem 'em
btw...i have to agree with something that techiechick said in another thread...where would we all be without m$...would AO even exist...would i have a job...hmmmm...maybe i should send bill a thank you card...no wait...i'm in again this weekend patching ie...maybe i'll send him this
i suppose there'd be alot more linux/mac viruses around out there...someone will always figure out how to break stuff...sigh...

My fav, although not slamming M$ is:
Linux: The choice of a GNU generation.
Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.

If you're in support of just about any kind you're stuck dealing with M$ products but it doesn't mean we can't whine about it.
Tripped across this interesting quote, and while it's rather old it only backs up my theory that OS upgrades are created for revenu generation and not technical advances.
"The reason we come up with new versions is not to fix bugs. It's absolutely not. It's the stupidest reason to buy a new version I ever heard. When we do a new version we put in lots of new things that people are asking for. And so, in no sense, is stability a reason to move to a new version. It's never a reason."
