Windows vs Ford Motor Company
To Good to NOT share
For all of us who feel only the deepest love and affection for the way
computers have enhanced our lives, read on.
At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the
computer industry with the auto industry and stated,
"If Ford had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we
would all be driving $25 cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon."
In response to Bill's comments, Ford issued a press release stating:
If Ford had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving
cars with the following characteristics (and I just love this part):
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.
I love the next one!
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
PS - I'd like to add that when all else fails, you could call "customer
service" in some foreign country and be instructed in some foreign
language how to fix your car yourself!
Please share this with your friends who love - but sometimes hate -

LADYPINKtomato1 I would love to see that press release site.
As I'm a retired Ford Master Mechanic I could add lot more.
That is a great post.
Many Ford automobiles have up to 20 computer modules stuck all over the car networked together where you can't see them.
If Microsoft made that car as soon as one of the modules had a module driver problem the car would stop instantly and shut down. Then the whole car would turn blue with a bunch of codes wrote all over it that nobody understands.
