At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates
reportedly compare the computer industry with the auto
industry and stated, "If GM had kept up with the
technology like the computer industry has, we would
all be driving $25.00 cars that got 1,000 miles to
the gallon".

In response to Bill's comments, General Motors
issued a press release stating:If GM had developed
technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving
cars with the following characteristics:

1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash
twice a day.

2. Every time they repainted the lines in the road,
you would have to buy a new car.

3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway
for no reason. You would have to pull over to the side
of the road, close all of the windows, shut off the
car, restart it, and reopen the windows before
you could continue. For some reason you would simply
accept this.

4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a
left turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse
to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall
the engine.

5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by
the sun, was reliable, five times as fast and twice as
easy to drive - but would run on only five percent of
the roads.

6. The oil, water temperature, and alternator
warning lights would all be replaced by a single "This
Car Has Performed An Illegal Operation" warning light.

7. The airbag system would ask "Are you sure?"
before deploying.

8. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car
would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you
simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key
and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.

9. Every time a new car was introduced car buyers
would have to learn how to drive all over again
because none of the controls would operate in
the same manner as the old car.

10.You'd have to press the "Start" button to turn
the engine off.
