What if Microsoft Built Cars?


from Software Strategies, April 1997


    1.   A particular model year of a car wouldn't be available until
         after that year, instead of before it.

    2.   Everytime they repainted the lines on the road, you'd have to
         buy a new car.

    3.   Occasionally your car would jus die for no reason, and you'd
         have to restart it.  For some strange reason, you just accept 
         this.

    4.   You could only have one person in the car at a time, unless you 
         bought Car95 or CarNT.  But then you'd have to buy more seats.

    5.   Sun Motosystems would make a car that was powered by the sun, 
         twice as reliable, and five times as fast -- but it would only
         run on 5% of the roads.

    6.   The oil, engine, gas, and alternator warning lights would be 
         replaced with a single "General Car Fault" warning light.

    7.   People would get excited about the "new" features in Microsoft 
         cars, forgetting completely that they had been available in
         other cars for years.

    8.   We'd all have to switch to Microsoft gas.

    9.   The U.S. government would be GETTING subsidies from an 
         automaker instead of GIVING them.

    10.  New seats would force everyone to have the same size butt.
