Bill Gates Vs Gm

Recommended Posts

For all of us who feel only the deepest love and affection for the way

computers have enhanced our lives, read on. 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

stating: If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be

driving cars with the following characteristics (and I just love this part):

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 lifted the door handle,

turned the key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.

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.

Please share this with your friends who love - but sometimes hate -

their computer!
