posted by sbp at 2001-11-09 22:52 (permalink)

Jobs Likes Gates' New Office

posted by Morbus at 2001-11-09 22:43 (permalink)

Morbus: Wired's take on the soon-to-be-released Office v. X. "The one strike that the Mac always had against it, remember, was that it didn't offer very good versions of Windows programs. Now that's changed -- the Mac version of Office makes the Windows version look like something designed in the last century. And that, of course, prompts the question -- why do we need Windows, again?"

True History Of The Net

Morbus: So Brian and Dennis started playing, and they created C. God saw C, and saw that it was good. So he decided to let Brian and Dennis play some more.
Morbus: Then Brian and Dennis created Unix. God saw Unix, and he was jealous. So he created Bill to torment Brian and Dennis and obscure their creation (for God could not destroy Unix, for he secretly admired its perfection).
Morbus: But all this time Brian and Dennis started to make something better than Unix called Plan 9 (because God was successful in foiling Brian and Dennis' previous seven plans [there was no Plan 8 because Brian and Dennis pulled the wool over God's eyes and just jumped to Plan 9, which was too bright a move for even God to figure out.] )
Morbus: Man, this is flipping hilarious.
