    Digital slaves. That's the dangers of letting companies control everything...
    even control (restrict) access to our photos and other media, let alone the
    brain. You can't even trust this company with that spyware called Vista, even
    updates with a mechanism that is misused.

    I think the first customer should be Blammer and the peripheral
    needs extra wires to attach high voltage electrodes to his testacles.

    Whenever he feels pain in his brain, his testacles gets it.
    Then we put him in front of a Pista machine and watch the fun.

    He never got that degree of his either and I doubt he understands formal specs,
    let alone anything but lock-in and mafia tactics. The man is demented and
    violent. He makes the Enron execs seem merciful and out of place (behind
    bars).

    Ballmer: self-made, risk-taker, empire builder
    Schestowitz: self-serving, Usenet-reposting, perpetual-student

    And don't you worry, Little Roy. Windows knowledge and skills will be in
    high demand - as they have been for 15 years - if you ever decide to leave
    school and unlatch from the parents teat and try to support yourself.

    Once again the Roy Schestowitz proves himself to be the biggest idiot of
    all.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Ballmer

    - Biography -
    He graduated from Harvard University with a bachelor's degree in mathematics
    and economics. While in college, Ballmer managed the football team, worked
    on the Harvard Crimson newspaper as well as the university literary
    magazine, and lived down the hall from fellow sophomore Bill Gates. After
    college, he worked for two years at Procter & Gamble as an assistant product
    manager and, before joining Microsoft, attended Stanford University Graduate
    School of Business.

    More proof that Roy Schestowitz has been popping stupid pills once
    again. Unlike the losers here, Ballmer has always been a leader.
