I like this one:
The most visible new features are enhancements that streamline core
Windows tasks like connecting to a wireless network...
Huh? I thought that was supposed to be dead-easy in XP and Vista?
...or organizing a digital music collection. But the new OS features are
more than just skin-deep; there are also improvements to core components,
such as an innovative way to stream music and other media directly to
network-connected media players.
Nice to see Microsoft finally catching up to Linux here. Wonder what the
terms or limitations of the streaming will be.
The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it
seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the
fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving
after rational knowledge.
