We’ve KNOWN the Pattern…

… So WHY haven’t we MOVED ON UP to better OS’ ?

It’s EXCEEDINGLY [cathartic] to have the opportunity to post this on [WORD]PRESS.COM. Since the times of the [Tandy \”99\”]computer, with the “hard drive being a simple audio cassette. (Think “back engineering” folks. If You really want to hide that personal info work your way backwards to this machine, once you’ve loaded Grandma’s “pole dance” video onto the cassette pop it into a Karoke machine… the ‘hidden’ info is “HISS” !), there have been those that enjoyed the freedoms that the computer availed them,( They’re the ones still FIGHTING for [the OPEN INTERNET]!). While those that wanted to repay [college loans] turned from their Ivy cloisters, at Horace Greeley’s urge, to the grunge basted [\”BASE-TURD\”/ basterd] we’ve come to see them for. There is NO REASON to ask WHY they did it, just look at how many lawn sprinklers they have to use… IT’S the MONEY !,( to the TENTH POWER !), ask Senator [Rockefeller] about the history of such things.

“To the Quick-ness of it man”, you say, well think with me here. For all that we’ve been through of “late”: Madoff,(pronounced MADE-OFF !), “Trickle Down”, ENRON, the BANKING “[\”SHIST-DOM\”]/ system, (Yep, it’s been rocky.), and the endless parade of personal computers that the WORLD has “had” to replenish its desk tops with “Billy-Paul’s”…

IBM partnership

In 1980, IBM approached Microsoft to write the BASIC interpreter for its upcoming personal computer, the IBM PC. When IBM’s representatives mentioned that they needed an operating system, Gates referred them to Digital Research (DRI), makers of the widely used CP/M operating system.[30] IBM’s discussions with Digital Research went poorly, and they did not reach a licensing agreement. IBM representative Jack Sams mentioned the licensing difficulties during a subsequent meeting with Gates and told him to get an acceptable operating system. A few weeks later Gates proposed using 86-DOS (QDOS), an operating system similar to CP/M that Tim Paterson of Seattle Computer Products (SCP) had made for hardware similar to the PC. Microsoft made a deal with SCP to become the exclusive licensing agent, and later the full owner, of 86-DOS. After adapting the operating system for the PC, Microsoft delivered it to IBM as PC-DOS in exchange for a one-time fee of $50,000. Gates did not offer to transfer the copyright on the operating system, because he believed that other hardware vendors would clone IBM’s system.[31] They did, and the sales of MS-DOS made Microsoft a major player in the industry.[32]

… previously unknown [lip-sync-ings]?

To wind this post “up” I want to make a shameless plug for an Operating System that most of you either don’t know about, or are just too indoctrinated to learn and use… [LINUX]. I’m “writing this through Linux Puppy 4.25, but there is a version called [\”DSL\”]. DSL works, ENTIRELY, from a computer’s [R A M]… and ONLY 56 mega byte of it at that ! YES, an entire OS out of 56K. It’s the atom of the computer age “BIG BANG”, wandering CIRCLES around Redmond, and does with a 386 what Windows ATTEMPTS through a terra-flop edition.

Is there ANY wonder why General Motors fell ? They made cars that got over 45mpg not too long ago, (GEO METRO.), but slide us cars that DON’T get the [mandates of 1985]. Microsoft has kept this practice aloft, but each en-“SUING” theft uncovered will render another business staple in need of government Cialis. Giving the addage “They BLUE IT!” an altogether new, (But TRUE.), definition. It would be prudent for Microsoft to create their own “fabrics”… with dyes that don’t bleed as red(mond)ily.
