The Next Big Release

Windows 7 (I believe that's the tentative name) is hesitantly slated to be released in late 2009 or early 2010.

One Microsoft spokesman claims that Windows 7 will do for Vista "what XP did for ME" in terms of making people "temporarily forget how much we suck".

Okay, I made that part up.  And it's not that comical, really.  Okay, I'm lying again.  The entire Vista fiasco has been mostly hilarious, and it's had to be, because otherwise we'd have to cry.

In other news, while the rest of us are struggling to make ends meet, some enormous corporation somewhere still has enough money to pay their programmers to put out bloatware that doesn't suit anybody's computing needs.  (But it fixes Bloatware v1.0.)

News From The Future:  School children gifted with charity units handed out by retailers in 2010 were heard to say, "Oh, man, it's got Vista on it.  Bastards."

In other Big News today, Rachael Ray ALMOST WORE A SCARF ON A DUNKIN DONUTS COMMERCIAL.  But thank god, the commercial was yanked in time.

Spokesmen for Dunkin Donuts refused to comment on whether or not this was an egregious publicity stunt designed to force millions of innocent news-browsers to see the trademark and suddenly want donuts with chocolate frosting.

With sprinkles.

But the really big news is that my apartment complex, in an apparent fit of either a) confusion or b) rampant sadism, has closed the front entrance and left only the back entrance open.  Which is a) confusing and b) cruel because, as elvinborn can affirm, a few days ago, the back was shut up tight and only the front entrance could be used.
