A history of M$

OK, by now you know I’m a victim of Microsoft… even the name’s a giveaway, this guy actually put micro & soft together for a name, I mean is that a freudian slip or what. And it’s not like his software is small, it’s anything but, and it’s getting bigger every time it’s upgraded. XP will take up a few gigs, but Vista will use up about 9 gigs with it’s whistles & bells, plus another 4 or 5 gigs for elbow room… and I don’t even want to get on to the topic of drivers.

Here’s an analogy of what MicroSoft has done. OK, you’ve got a little 2 bedroom cottage. Sometime later you decide the family’s growing, hey I’ll add a few rooms. To save money you decide to DIY, why not, you picked up that drawing board at a garage sale awhile back here’s a chance to use it.

So initially you draw out a few rough sketches on the back of an envelope, you decide to pull down a few walls here, put up a few walls here and here. Next you pull out a few small windows and replace them with bigger windows, so you can enjoy the vista. There never enough bathrooms nor storage, so you put ensuits and walking wardrobes on each of the bedrooms which now number 5. A bigger kitchen and new bathroom, a formal dining room would be nice, a games room for the kids, an entertainment/home theater and a spar and gym would be a good idea too.

What you end up with is a dog’s breakfast… it doesn’t work, it leaks because the roof’s a nightmare, you’ve got areas of dead space and useless hallways… after a couple of years the additions foundations settle and get out of sink with the original sections of the building and your thinking why oh why didn’t I just pull the old place down and start from scratch like Steve Jobs… good question.
