A Note to People Who Think Windows 7 Was Their Idea

Windows 7 was not your idea. Please shut up. All of you. You are lying to us. I’ll agree that advertising is often times misleading, manipulative, and borderline lying. But seriously, you’re actually lying to us. You had no such ideas. Even if you did, you did not communicate them. You sat on your butt and complained that your previous computer worked poorly. You maybe hit the “Send Error Report to Microsoft” button when an application crashed. That does not count as passing your ideas along. It counts as telling Microsoft your stuff was broken. I appreciate optimism in general, but this is self-delusion. Please be quiet.

Sincerely, Me.

Note: This does not apply to the nice people in Redmond and Mumbai that did have ideas that went into Windows 7. Hats off to you. I’m glad you enjoyed OS X 10.4 enough to remake it for Microsoft.
