Yes, it's an old article.
VERY FUNNY that General Motors said that years ago. Those points attacking Microsoft turned out to be what GM car owners experience in their own cars. Basically, those points can be apply to GM products.
What is the condition of GM now (financially)???
Computer geeks (esp. Microsoft fanboys) should be laughing their ass off at GM begging for government cheese.
Toyota, Honda, et al. should just kill off Detroit's Big Three. GM, Ford, and Chrysler cars are junk as of late. As an American, I say, "let them go bankrupt." That's the only way they will learn. Give them government assistance (loans), and they will continue to produce junk that no one wants to buy.
Yes, Mr. Bill Gates is laughing his ass off right now, especially at GM.
