At  a computer expo (COMDEX),
Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry
with the auto industry  and stated, "If GM had kept up
with 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 (and I just
  love this part):

  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 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

  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

  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

  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.
