Dear  Bill ... about  your  software


We've  e-mailed  you  to  let  you  know
your  software  has  a  flaw
We  double  checked  it's  possible
your  writers  never  saw

It  takes  too  long  to  boot  up
much longer  than  before
The  double  click  is  screwed  up
we  have  to  give  it  3  or  4

Our  hardware  doesn't  function
the  way  it  was  designed
It  conflicts  with  your  software
but  your  driver  doesn't  mind

It  agitates  the  hardrive
partitioned  error  free
And  complicates  the  C  drive
and  E  drive  after  D

The  megabytes  and  gigabytes
don't  make  no  sense  you see
We  read  your  book
it  took  a  month
to  get  to  chapter  three

LOL, I loved this! I am a computer nerd by nature, so this poem means a lot to me   Too many times have I had to deal with the multitude of problems with Micro$haft Winblows 98  

 I am not a poet, I am merely one who speaks in emotion

Everyone I know thinks Mr Bill has nothing much to be proud of these days
guess he's too busy counting money in his counting house

Let me ask you all something...

lets kick and scream and yell and swear
at Mr. gates and his software,
but have you ever wondered why
a better program you have not come by?

I mean, if windows is so ****
why the hell do you use it?
i think everyone should stop and think
and thank bill gates, his OSs don't stink.  

thanks bill for windows.... i've never seen better.

A better program I have come across,
It goes by the simple name of Linux.
To name its faults leaves me at a great loss,
And it is even free, not lotsa bucks!

Windoze simply rules through monopoly.
With dear friend Bill raking in all the cash.
With no incentive, he works sloppily.
With much software support, foes he can mash.

 I am not a poet, I am merely one who speaks in emotion

Rex - great poem.  I like the way it not only flowed, but said so much!  It does get aggravating the way MS makes its customers its unwitting beta testers.  As for software development... hmmph... buying software companies and repackaging their products does not make MS a software developer.

I admit that MS has come a long way but I believe they need to and can now afford to go a lot farther
They can now afford to see what they can give instead of what they can get

Rex... I'm far from computer savy... I use what gets me by... I suppose if I were more a computer guru I could bash BG with the best, but I don't know squat... so I'll leave that to my betters.  However, I can say that I enjoyed your words.  Thanks for the laughs and keep 'em coming. May you be bug free.
