Microsoft Flame Bait

 Microsoft Flame Bait

Don't know where this comes from;  it's probably "going around."  But since
I haven't seen it on c.l.a yet, ....

Date    5/22/96
Subject FWD>>>Microsoft Child!

For the first time in, oh, a decade, I think, something from Microsoft
shipped on time: Jennifer Katharine Gates, weighed 8 pounds 6 ounces
when she was downloaded, er, born on Friday, April 26 at 6:11 p.m.

And what do Baby Gates and Daddy's products have in common?

1.  Neither can stand on its own two feet without a LOT of third party
support.

2.  Both barf all over themselves _regularly_.

3.  Regardless of the problem, calling Microsoft Tech Support won't
help.

4.  As they mature, we pray that they will be better than that which
preceeded them.

5.  At first release they're relatively compact, but they seem to grow
 and grow and grow with each passing year.

6.  Although announced with great fanfare, pretty much anyone could have
produced one.

7.  They arrive in shaky condition with inadequate documentation.

8.  No matter what, it takes several months between the announcement and
the actual release.

9.  Bill gets the credit, but someone else did most of the work.

10. For at least the next year, they'll suck.
