Comment MS Windows is the anti Star Trek! (Score 1) 880

MS is the Anti-Star Trek.

Odd Number Star Trek Movies: Bad
Even Number Star Trek Movies: Good

Odd releases of Windows: Good-ish (grading on a curve only against other versions of MS Windows)
Even releases of Windows: God awful

(Assuming you count Windows 95 and Windows 98 as one release, which is more or less the case since Windows 98 was essentially Windows 95 with better USB support.)

"Necessity is the mother of invention" is a silly proverb. "Necessity is the mother of futile dodges" is much nearer the truth. -- Alfred North Whitehead
