On June 8, 2006 an editorial was published on the APC site titled “It’s a Windows world: deal with it” that was very in-your-face about how you and everyone else was going to upgrade to Vista. My reply today:
One year later…
“we are the Microsoft/MSN/Hotmail generation of computer users […] Windows rules now, and will rule next year too. Attack Vista all you like – it makes for amusing viewing.”
To be blunt, your generation is on the way out. This is nothing new, of course; nothing lasts forever. So how long before the next computer generation takes over? Three years? Five? Regardless, its coming. If you own MS stock, you might want to sell soon.
(I note, with some delicious irony BTW, that the Ubuntu logo is far more prominent on this month’s APC cover than Vista’s)
