Interesting that you touch on that point. I posted the following URL about
half a dozen times in UseNet (a variety of contexts):


"Even as I'm watching the 2005 WinHEC keynote right now (which I downloaded
from a fan site, FWIW), I'm screaming at my screen! The Longhorn
demonstration was faaaaaar from impressive, and left me NOT wanting more -
but wanting to walk away altogether. Instead of watching with awe and
wonder, I'm watching with a very confused look on my face. My brow is
furrowed, and my fingers are slamming against the keys of my keyboard at
this very moment... I'm growing increasingly impatient."
