Those who don't know UNIX are destined to recreate it, eventually!

Before anyone can take software and systems management seriously on the antiquited Windows Platform, it needs a proper package management system, like those found on Linux and Unix systems, this ad-hoc InstallShield idea provides no basis for system continuity, system consistency, system security, system reliability or system stability.

Oxymoron indeed

Okay.... so they:

For all the people who give Apple sh't you never see them doing anything quite *as* stupid as this!

Either Craig or Ballmer, take your pick.

Considering his past actions I think Craig hates IT people almost as much as Gates but more than Ballmer.

Perhaps one could think of...

Gates/Ballmer/Mundie as the unholy trinity (Satan/Antichrist/False Prophet). Mind you, the real unholy trinity probably makes the Microsoft crew look like naive never gonnabes :P
