Amper: I don't know - I can't crap inside the OS. I can, however, crap in the box it came in.

I'm pretty sure Microsoft already did that for us.

thecpt: Doesn't look bad really. I always thought the vista box looked like they were trying to sell a video game

...Why's it gotta be a black version?

Because that's the pro version. White version is mostly for sandlot and rec leagues.

Perlin Noise: Its a farking box ...who gives a flying shiat...

It could have a golden turd on it and it would not matter.

This is similar to complaining about the art on a Coke can ...

Golden Turd is more fitting, though.

Bschott007: My apology. I mistakenly thought, for some reason, Rio came out in 85 or 87. My bad. Honestly, I haven't noticed the 80's styles making a comeback, but then again just a few years ago the 70's styles tried to make a come back and that fade just as quickly died as it started.

Yeah, I was a bit incredulous about the latest styles - but I noticed my middle school nephew and nieces wearing skinny jeans, zebra print pants, neon and pretty much the same stuff as in LMFAO videos. All we need now is a return of hypercolor t-shirts.

The same people today:

jayhawk88: Just a little concession that maybe 20 years of user interface isn't worth throwing into the trash because iPad.

So my sister worked for MS for a few years. Shortly before she quit, she joined the Windows 8 team (as a user computer interactions expert/researcher. I'm not sure I should be saying this, but she did not tell me not to.

I asked her what the F they were thinking and this is what she said...

Here is an anecdote that has become legend in my house. At my ONE meeting with my new Manager at Windows 8, - keep in mind this guy oversaw 28 researchers! 28! - I presented him with a detailed research plan and asked for the resources to fulfill it. He responded with "Well Jennifer, you see here at Windows UX Research, we don't really work with data. We prefer to work with 'hunches'".

She quit weeks later. This brought me to the realization, if it really looks like they don't know what the fark they are doing, they almost certainly don't.

Microsoft is an extremely dysfunctional work environment full of only two motivations. Greed and Ego.

/that's my CSB for the month
