Well, now, isn’t this cute?

I read this (from ZDNet UK)…

“It is this switching cost that has given the customers the patience to stick with Windows through all our mistakes, our buggy drivers, our high TCO [total cost of ownership], our lack of a sexy vision at times, and many other difficulties […] Customers constantly evaluate other desktop platforms, [but] it would be so much work to move over that they hope we just improve Windows rather than force them to move.”

…as I sit in the Thorn office running Windows, and find myself hoping this wholeDavidthing isn’t a hoax. I’m not a Microsoft hater, really (I have fun with ASP, after all); I would just like some damn elbow room from their all-pervasive presence.
