Windows Vista

I was talking to a few people in a store and then around the office and started to wonder to myself is Windows Vista the new Windows ME?

If you think about it the cycle would be right.

(1)Windows95(Decent)
(2)Windows98(Little Better)
(3)WindowsME(Crap)
(1)Windows2000(oh not bad)
(2)WindowsXP(Little Better)
(3)Windows Vista(CRAP)
(1)Windows7(Who knows?)

It’s just a thought from someone who would not care if Microsoft fell of the face of the earth right now. The are a company I think we could all live without and are truly un-American when they tell the congress and such that they can’t get any HB1 visa in the country when thousands of developers and IT people are out of work in the US. Why not hire the US Citizens in the US, oh I know why, I could cost to much to hire Americans to do the job, when you could get some no talent outsider to come in and work twice as hard for half the pay as a contractor. Now it all makes sense.

So back to my topic, is Windows Vista the new WindowsME, sure seems that way. I know when ME came out there were people begging to just get Window 98 on the PC, and then Microsoft came out with Windows98SE to get them to shut up and stop calling ME bad. I don’t think we will every see a WindowsXPSE? There is also rumor that Windows7 is right around the corner too. Why do you all as consumers continue to put up with crap? Why is that acceptable from Microsoft, but if FORD or Chevy make crap you choose not to use it and by Honda or Toyota? Microsoft is crap, it’s time to got to Linux or Apple.
