This is getting ridiculous.  Does Microsoft even *know*
about a certain computer game whose first incarnation was
released in 1993, and at one point was voted "#1 game of
all time"?


The leader for DOOM III (Demo) is mildly entertaining.
Makes UAC to be "beyond moral boundaries" with an unlimited
budget.  Sound familiar? :-)

Linux.  The choice of a GNU generation.
Windows.  The choice of a bunch of people who like very weird behavior on
a regular basis, random crashes, and "extend, embrace, and extinguish".
