(clicky)or for a lighter slice of news
via twitter, a pair of microsofties-
Chris Pietschmann, of Microsoft: ""American #cheese, Cheese Wiz, and #Velveeta @EatLiquidGold are the worst 'cheese' products."
Velveeta responded: "NOT COOL CHRIS -- WE DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING WHEN VISTA CAME OUT."
Microsoft: "Vista was the Velveeta of Windows releases?.. ok, it's not 'that' bad."
Velveeta: "SORRY CAN'T HEAR YOU THE ZUNE IS TOO LOUD."

OOOOOHHH!! ! :twisted:

only wish i was rich enough to afford a mac.

Well I've worked for Micro$oft (post Vista) & I'm eating Annie's organic mac & cheese as I type this, so I'm siding with the tweet. :lol:

It's good with jalapeños...

Blabby can probably afford a Mac, but wanted a $53,000 Xeon cheese grater.

No need for liquid cooling, it should have plenty of airflow...

:lol: Lord no, I didn't leave Colorado in the 3 months I was editing 3D maps for windows 10. Their recruiters have poked me to do more of that in Redmond though, but my current job is more fun.

Windows itself is actually some very powerful software these days, if one is willing to put up with Gate's mess. I use it constantly at work but normally I'm on my Linux ultrabook at home.

My Xeon is in a ThinkPad.

(It warms my heart to see so many stupid puns).

I can't believe someone would undermine the civility of cheese discourse!
I don't care for Velveeta, but I cannot condone such patent slander.
Cant we just agruyere to disagruyere?
