Prozac is for depression, not obsession, mania, paranoia,
or even weak logic.

I'm still eagerly awaiting the release of Microsoft Linux. They could
leverage all the work of the ranting maniacs out there (effectively
tapping the wages paid by other companies, as the Linux market does
now), open source very little if nothing, port the Office suite
and presto, they could give away an OS and continue to sell apps.

With .NET, they'll completely blur the line between OS and app
nonetheless. All hail the subscription model! With $400 MSN
discounts appearing on every PC in the retail chain, and ads
touting $150 (with MSN discount) computers, how far are we from
"free Microsoft computers"?

No doubt Apple is thinking the same thing with OS X: it's portable
between machines and it can begin to leverage all the code-work of
all the "free" programmers.

For the classic connection, I firmly believe there will always
be a way to drop to a DOS prompt.
