Not much changes
To be honest, after 25 years, I despair of the whole industry at times (Why Redmond prevails, 26 May). Re-packaging and re-inventing the same old tired arguments at 10-year intervals.
As I write, my Windows XP machine is threatening to finally succumb to “cumulative patch fatigue” – a Microsoft expression – and give up the ghost, and I wonder whether the constant promises for new technology are as good as the statement: “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”
Perhaps I should simply grow my hair long, sprout a beard and buy a Mac?
