Not unlike many people, I pretty much despise Micro$oft. Ten years ago when I was on the faculty at Vanderbilt University, that despicable behemoth of a firm cheated me out of something it promised in exchange for a personal introduction needed by one of its sales reps, and I have never forgotten the slight.

Hear that, Scobleizer – Microsoft Geek? And Micro$oft wonders why it was recently surveyed as one of the least trusted firms now doing business? Duh. But, provide me the Microsoft Office Suite promised me by your sales rep back then and all will be forgiven.

That vented, Scobleizer (a fellow WordPress blogger) brings to our attention another totally unoriginal idea from Micro$oftviral marketing at for a new operating system (Vista) I will do my very best to never buy or recommend, unless Micro$oft makes good on its still unfulfilled promise.

(And no, Micro$oft, you don’t even get a graphic or logo. I do not forget those who have cheated me. That is also why every single one of my clients is steered toward Open Office and not Micro$oft’s office suite. And, not a single one has yet complained about not having your product installed.)
