Bill Gates' Kid
Okay, something from left field.... I was reading a book about Windows 7, in an attempt to stay on the top of my game. The thought occurred to me that we have all been witnessing the evolution of a child. "What?" you say? Follow this, essentially Windows started as version 3.1, a baby, if you will, barely able to get around. It continued to a toddler with v. 3.11 and now quite mobile. When we get to Windows 95 and 98, we have reached adolescence and it is really feeling its oats. Then the teenager comes along in the form of Millennium and getting into all kinds of trouble. It finally becomes a young adult with XP and settles in. But wait, Vista comes along and we have mid-life crisis. I am hoping with Windows 7, we have reached the point of the OS becoming a mature adult and settling into a nice smooth ride.
It is only when they go wrong that machines remind you how powerful they are. - Clive James
