This is so true.. :lol:

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

>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

>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.
