If Microsoft Built Cars…

If Microsoft Built Cars…
Bill Gates wanted to look good and impress everyone with his success.  He decided to measure Microsoft accomplishments against General Motors.  His comparison went like this:
“If automotive technology had kept pace with computer technology over the past few decades, you would now be driving a V-32 instead of a V8, and it would have a top speed of
10,000 miles/hour or you could have an economy car that weighs 30 pounds and gets a thousand miles to the gallon.  In either case, the sticker price of the new car would be less than $50.00″

In response to all this provoking, General Motors responded “Yes, but would you really want to drive a car that crashes 4 times a day?”

General Motors continued by stating that if Microsoft built cars:

  • Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason, and you’d have to restart it.  For some strange reason, you’d just accept this and drive on.
  • Occasionally, your car would stop and fail to restart, and you’d have to reinstall the engine.  For some strange reason, you’d just accept this too.
  • A particular model year of car wouldn’t be available until after that year instead of before it.
  • Every time they repainted the lines on the road, you’d have to buy a new car.
  • People would get excited about the “new” features in Microsoft cars, forgetting completely that they had been available in other cars for years.
  • Everyone would have to switch to Microsoft gas.
  • Apple would make a car that was powered by the sun, was twice as fast, twice as easy to drive-but would only run on 5 percent of the road.
  • The Macintosh car owners would get expensive Microsoft upgrades to their cars, which would make their cars run much slower.
  • The oil, engine, gas and alternator warning lights would be replaced by a single “general car default” warning light.
  • New seats would force everyone to have the same size butt.
  • The airbag system would ask, “Are you sure?” before going off.
  • If you were involved in a crash, you would have no idea what happened.
