View Full Version : Dvorak on MS Confusing the Industry

September 13th, 2005, 09:32 PM
With news of there being 7 Vista editions, PC Magazine Columnist John C. Dvorak takes a hilarious spin on the different Vistas with some recommendations of his own. How about the Vista Porn Edition? All the great porn sites would be pre-bookmarked. Gamer Case-Mod Edition? It can be ultraoptimized for games with a blinking hard-drive light. You can even go as far as the Microsoft Vista for Costco Customers: the Cheaper Edition.

I propose

Windows Vista Linux Edition - Unlike other edition this one actually "Just works"

Windows Vista Shareware Edition - Has all the shareware that can be had installed on it, so within 30 days of ownership of the OS, you get spammed with notices of, if you like likd to by this product go here, pop up windows.

Windows Vista Hacked Edition - The free downloadble one

Windows Vista Retro Edition - win 95 with a new desktop face lift

or Windows Vista Flying Edition. It'll require wings on the case and will be able to recover from being thrown from a window ;-)

When I first read the thread title I envisioned something about MS switching to a dvorak keymap as the default on Vista...that would certainly confuse most people!

Microsoft Vista for Desperate Housewives

For users at work, there would be a built-in "boss" key capability that would switch the machine to a faux Enterprise edition.
I can almost picture it, the boss telling the tech guys to migrate to Vista so he doesn't have to see the office staffs' porn when he walks by.

Actually the suggestions in that article are better then the rumoured editions. The rumoured editions are just more or less crippled versions of the same thing. The suggestions in that article are actually unique and target different niches,

How about "Windows Vista OSX Edition?"

Thats the one that all of the non-Gnu hackers will be putting on their mom's computer in two years!

How about

Windows Vista: Ready to Go

This one will come preloaded with faulty drivers, viruses and spyware out of the box. It is designed to provide an optimal installation of windows vista the first time it boots up.

No need to wait 15 minutes for your computer to be optimized by bonzi buddy anymore. And you thought vista would be slow...
