Name: nanda General Motors REPLY TO BILL GATES

At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the
computer industry with the auto industry and stated,

\" If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we
would all be driving $25.00 cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon.\"

In response to Bill' s comments, General Motors issued a press
release stating:


\" If GM had developed technology like microsoft, we would all be
driving cars with the following characteristics (and I just love
this part, esp 7th point and 10' th point):

1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash twice a day.

2. Every time they repainted the lines in the road, you would have to
buy a new car.

3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You
would have to pull to the side of the road, close all of the windows,
shut off the car, restart it, and reopen the windows before you could
continue. For some reason you would simply accept this.

4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause
your car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have
to reinstall the engine.

5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was
reliable, five times as fast and twice as easy to drive - but would ! run
on only five percent of the roads.

6. The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights would all
be replaced by a single \" This Car Has Performed an Illegal Operation\"
warning light.

7. The airbag system would ask \" Are you sure?\" before deploying .

8. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out
and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle,
turned the key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.

9. Every time a new car was introduced car buyers would have to
learn how to drive all over again because none of the controls would
operate in the same manner as the old car.

10. You' d have to press the \" Start\" button to turn the engine off. \"

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change.
The courage to change the things I can.
And the wisdom to know the difference.
