    gm WINDOWS

    For us who feel the deepest love and affection for how computers have
    enhanced our lives, read on.

    At a recent computer expo, Bill Gates compared the computer industry
    with the auto industry and stated, "If GM had kept up with technology
    like the computer industry, we would be driving $25 cars that got 1,000
    miles to the gallon."

    In response to Bill's comments, General Motors issued a press release

    If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would be driving cars
    with the following characteristics:

    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 to the side of the road, close all of the windows,
    the car, restart it, and reopen the windows before you could continue.
    For some reason you would simply accept this.

    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,
    5 times as fast and twice as easy to drive - but would run on only 5% 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 deploying.

    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.

    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.
