Some dude from Microsoft in the U.K. gave an interview where he admitted the obvious: “One of the things that people say an awful lot about the Apple Mac is that the OS is fantastic, that it’s very graphical and easy to use. What we’ve tried to do with Windows 7 – whether it’s traditional format or in a touch format – is create a Mac look and feel in terms of graphics.”
Which put the Borg into a panic and caused them to scold their truth-teller in public and to repeat their claim about how they don’t copy us at all: “Simon was incorrect in describing Windows 7 in this way and subsequent headlines claiming that the Mac OS inspired Windows 7 are totally inaccurate.”
And then the Borg rolls out this old chestnut: “Over nine out of ten computer users choose Windows.”
Now, come on. Windows is like herpes. Or genital warts. Nobody chooses Windows. People get Windows. It comes preloaded on their crap machine, and they’re stuck with it.
Anyone who actually cares about this stuff goes with us. The rest, who we call the lumpenproletariat, will always use whatever comes cheap or whatever some bozo at the big box store tells them is the best. And as you will recall from reading your Marx, the lumpenproletariat were not worth worrying about.
So, yes, Microsoft, you have more than 90 percent market share. Every blockhead and cheapskate in the world goes with you. Congratulations!
