Then they could add a new event kind of like a course that you have to run.

Start off with a big 8 person bong (hookah) and everyone takes a big hit and then runs to 1st station and plays a quick RTS match then after that another big hit and then on to the 2nd station where they play a round of FPS gaming and so on.

Man I'm ready for that contest.

Why Ballmer Should Leave Microsoft 341

Posted by Zonk
from the insert-cheap-chair-throwing-joke-here dept.
An anonymous reader writes "In the wake of the announcement of Bill Gates' departure from the top spot at Microsoft, CNN Money is carrying an article arguing that Steve Ballmer should step down as well." From the article: "Since Gates stepped down as CEO in 2000 in favor of Ballmer, the company has floundered technically and strategically. As the company's chairman, chief software architect and supposed visionary, Gates deserves blame for missing the wave of Web-based software that has propelled Google and Yahoo. But Ballmer has made gaffes of his own in his longtime role as head of the company's business side. They include an undistinguished push into business applications to compete with Oracle, financial maneuvers that have failed to stir the stock - which has slumped 16 percent so far this year - and continuing antitrust problems in the United States and Europe."

Alright, easy. How do you think most users got that update in the first place?
OH NO THE COMPUTER COMMUNICATED WITH MICROSOFT.

Please, enough of this bullshit. I know that /. is Pro Linux and Anti Windows, but when it bleeds into the actual news posts, this really makes me question the validity of this as a news site.

Come on! This is /.! Not Fox News!
