I wrote this in October 2006... its a classic! LOL enjoy!

-----

In the 5 year period between windows releases Microsoft has a special
project that was "top secret".
They had sent expeditions to Africa to find the best quality baboons they
could find.
The reason for this is was a idea that flashed into the mind of Bill Gates
when he was visiting his local zoo.

"What if we could tap into the animal instinct and use that to help us
create better User Interfaces???"

The expedition smuggled 10 baboons and flied them to Redmond where after 3
months of training they were
put as heads if User Interface design for Vista, office2007, and Internet
explorer 7.
Using normal offices, wearing suites etc these monkeys were part of the
Microsoft team!

"It was a change for sure, and that's what we wanted for Vista products"
said the personnel manager of Microsoft.
"We wanted to tap into the animal instinct and give vista a "masculine"
feeling and look.
One word was on our mind, change change change.. we didn't really know what
to change or how to change it but we did need change, that's the role the
monkeys played."


"Our idea was that we believe that animals are far more intelligent than
with think. Baboons are primates like us and share 99% of our dna... we
wanted them to lead us in this new era and guide us with their instincts.
Hey and it was fun monkeying around with the baboons on the coffee breaks
too"


"The way the baboons taught us how to design Vista and the other new
products was ingenious!
We made special building blocks of various designs.. and we let the monkeys
play around with them...
after some time one monkey made the vista start menu, another one made the
Internet explorer 7 interface... and another made the office 2007 ribbon!"

"We would have never thought of these designs on our own!!!" Said one of the
senior developers for vista...


However this news when leaked this week created much controversy. Microsoft
was using animals for their own purposes, taking advantage of them, paying
them only with bananas
and coffee and an occasional smoke...


Microsoft spokesman, Gregory Nevel said to the press:
"It is our decision to put them on the payroll from now on.. if they are
good enough for making vista, they should be able to go online and order as
many bananas as they want"

But not really.

More importantly, don't you think it's a bit narcissistic to label one of
your own posts as a 'classic'?

Isn't it narcissism on your part to think you can critisize & question a
classic? :)

Go play with your vista toy now, and have a webcam running.. if you start
growing
lots of hair all over your body, it means that its the baboon design
effecting you.

Reboot into XP or linux or use a mac for a couple of hours, then you can
resume your
waste of time on vista.

to Redmond...

My money suite...? Is that some sort of integrated accountancy software...?
you don't need a monkey suite!
You're right about that - I can't imagine what I would need a monkey suite
for, even if I knew what a monkey suite was...

Have you really got nothing better to do...?

You hate Vista - the group understands this...

Nobody is allowed to disagree with you - the group understands this too...

What is the intended goal of your continuing diatribe...?

Oh you are allowed to disagree... and I don't really hate vista... I don't
like it, but I don't hate it.

I will explain eventually what I want to do... I can ensure you that my mind
is only on helping others....

Even though I may seem harsh ... there is no real ill intent.. nor do I
really mean any of the insults I thew at you...
