Imagine how we must look from their perspective. Like gods peering down on them from the heavens with magical devices that grant us powers. Can you imagine if we as a people encountered beings who were just as advanced from us as we are from those tribes. Hell even a mere 100 years of progress would seem miraculous to us to say nothing of eons. Imagine how we would look to someone from 1914.

Chances are they will "forget" (you gotta remember, cheese is pure profit, they get it almost free, subsidized by the government), and you will get a cheeseburger anyway. Yeah, I would demand a refund.

Um, who is "they" getting free (government subsidized) cheese that is pure profit because I'm sure the owner of the business at which I work would very likely take exception to that...

Since when is having a light-weight OS a bad thing? Haven't people been harping on MS enough for having bloated OSes?

Sure, make allowances for multiple-core and multiple CPUs on the not-so-low end, but making the minimum requirement a single CPU was definitely smart on their end.

Having a light weight OS isn't a bad thing, but just as bloat is bad, so is keeping it small for the sake of keeping it small. If we're sacrificing a feature rich OS for no other reason than to support hardware from 10+ years ago, then something needs to change. Computers are dirt cheap these days, so there's very little excuse to not upgrade if it's so much of an issue for you that you're demanding MS design it's OS around your 10 year old computer.

If they employ these methods, their risk should reduce significantly, as well as repo costs, and therefore be reflected in nice big loan rate drops.
