Bill Gates, handmaid of Satan

The Emperor linked to this great FAQ which dismantles in great detail the theory that Vista! will usher in a new era of prosperity and freedom from want. As everyone knows, Pelosi's ascension to Speaker was the signal that the new Golden Age was upon us. In any event, you should read the article at length, and then go back to this article which I linked to some months ago and realize that there are alternatives.

The reality is that Xandros is may be your best bet if you don't want to spend a bunch of money upgrading your hardward to support a beastly system hog of an OS, but don't want to spend much, if any, time on the steep part of the learning curve.

Update: Heh. Looks like Microsoft effed up just a little bit, which is likely to cost them some money as people opt for the upgrade version, rather than the fresh install version. Then again, I won't be "upgrading", so it doesn't really matter to me.

Thanks to DJ Allyn for the heads up.

Update: For reasons that escape, I am the #2 returned search item on the Huffington Post for the word "satan". So welcome, I guess. For those of you expecting a direct link to Bush's official website, feel free to move along.

I really enjoy this... how many times do I need to say Satan in my comment to keep you at the top?
