    Umm, well, I think the message is this: Vista is gay, it thinks it's cool but it's not, and while it seems to be having a great deal of fun, it's really just dying more quickly than the rest of us... it's the drugs, you see. Oh, and because it's "having so much fun" it's also "far more likely to catch a deadly virus" in the process. That's why us technophile folks always tell our friends and clients to use protection. :)

    So you're saying that gays think they're cool, but they're not; they think they're having fun, but all that fun is going to kill them; gays that have fun are going to get a virus... That's insulting.

    I think what it's trying to say is that Vista is gay, which I guess according to the picture is a bad thing (as the picture is clearly hyping the hot woman as the System i and therefore the good thing). And not only that, but flamboyantly gay. Apparently that's worse than if it was just some dude in a Brett Favre jersey with a little conversation bubble that said, "I'm gay." Because I'm sure there are plenty of Brett Favre fans out there that are gay. And by that I mean they're fans of his football talent, and not necessarily of his incredible hotness. Although I do wonder if there are gay men out there who love Brett Favre as a football player but who don't think he's that hot. If there are any of those out there who also read this blog, please chime in and let us know what you think of the Vista picture. Thanks.

    Does this mean that the IBM i is 'high maintenance'?

    I think it means that Vista rocks out like Rob Halford from Judas Priest. SOLD!
