Friday fun: HEADLINE: Microsoft Windows glider crashes

Troy Tate Profile: Troy Tate

Well, the headline may be tongue-in-cheek but this is truly a fun story for a Friday. The Register reports the Microsoft Phoenix glider fails to show the “right stuff” in the recent Red Bull Flugtag competition in Long Beach, California. Guess the engineers didn’t do much end-user testing on the device. I just wonder how many man-hours went into the team choreography to the XP / Windows 7 mashup.

Have a great weekend! Thanks for reading and let’s continue to be good network citizens! And remember – Windows can’t fly.
