    Microsoft v/s General Motors

    I Got this on mail from one of my friend....

    Microsoft v/s General Motors

    Mr Bill Gates of Microsoft once commented "If GM had
    kept up with technology like the computer industry
    has, we would all be driving $25.00 cars that got
    1,000 miles to the gallon".

    In response to Bill's comments, General Motors issued
    a press Release stating:
    If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we
    would all be driving cars with the following

    1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash
    twice a day.

    2. Every time they repainted the lines in the road,
    you would have to buy a new car.

    3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for
    no reason. You would have to pull over to the side of
    the road, close all of the windows, shut off the car,
    restart it, and reopen the windows before you could
    continue. For some reason you would simply accept

    4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left
    turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse to
    restart, in which case you would have to reinstall
    the engine.

    5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the
    sun, was reliable, five times as fast and twice as
    easy to drive - but would run on only five percent of
    the roads.

    6. The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning
    lights would all be replaced by a single "This Car Has
    Performed An Illegal Operation" warning light.

    7. The airbag system would ask "Are you sure?" before

    8. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car
    would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you
    simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key
    and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.
    (Ctrl-Alt-Del.... )
    9. Every time a new car was introduced car buyers
    would have to learn how to drive all over again
    because none of the controls would operate in the same
    manner as the old car.

    10. You'd have to press the "Start" button to turn the
    engine off
