This picture has me thinking. I never really spent too much time in the “underworld” of anti-Microsoft until I started my company a couple of years ago. I just didn’t understand why all of the programmers I interviewed scoffed at our reliance on Microsoft products. Microsoft Windows and Office was all I used as an employee at bigger companies and in college, so what was the big deal with Microsoft products?
After spending the last couple of years with programmers that went blue in the face explaining that Microsoft products are like buying a car that you cant work on youself when it breaks down, you need to take it to the Official Dealer, I realized the downfall of using microsoft. Not to say that it doesn’t provide a great product for entry level computer users and companies that can afford to write off millions of dollars in licensing and support fees, I just know it’s not for me.
Microsoft Windows Vista Bootlegged
Getting this picture of a bootlegged copy of Vista with the license key written on the blank disk sitting on a Windows Vista Coming Soon… promo display sent to me by one of my close friends (programmer) had me thinking. There is a world of people laughing at the new Windows Vista Product launch and this is what their jokes look like.
