> Gates vs. GM


> 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.
> I love the next one!!!
> 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!
