C#, .Net , and my thoughts

Microsoft & General Motors

At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the
computer industry with the auto industry and stated,

“If GM had kept up  with technology like the computer industry has, we
would all be driving  $25.00 cars that got 1,000 miles to the  gallon.”

In response to Bill’s comments, General Motors issued a press release

“If GM had developed technology like   microsoft, we would all be  driving
cars with the following characteristics

1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash twice a  day.

2. Every time they repainted the  lines in the road, you would have  to
buy a new car.

3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no  reason. You
would have to pull to the side of the road, close  all of the  windows,
shut off the car, restart it, and reopen the windows before you could
continue. For some reason you would simply accept this.

4. Occasionally, executing a  maneuver such as a  left turn would cause
your car to shut down and refuse  to restart, in which case you would have
to reinstall the  engine.

5. Macintosh would make a car  that was powered by  the sun, was reliable,
five times as fast and twice as  easy to drive – but would ! run on only five
percent of the  roads.

6. The oil, water temperature,  and alternator warning lights would all
be replaced by a single “This Car  Has Performed an  Illegal Operation”
warning light.

7. The airbag system would ask “Are you sure?” before deploying.

8. Occasionally, for no reason  whatsoever, your  car would lock you out
and refuse to let you in until you  simultaneously
l ifted the door handle, turned the key and grabbed hold of  the radio

9. Every  time a new car was introduced car buyers would have to learn  how
to drive  all over again because none of the   controls would operate in
the same  manner as the old car.

10. You’d  have to press the “Start” button to turn the engine off. ”
