Note the lower case “s”. I’m such a good shill.
Today Microsoft announced that they would be conducting an experiment to see if their beta serves could be made to explode. To achieve this seemingly impossible result, they announced the public beta for not one, not two, but three products at the same time. Not just any products, mind you, but their three most popular products.
One of those products is known as 2007 Microsoft Office system, but many “retailers” on the streets of Hong Kong are referring to it as Office 2007 Super Happy Fun. I urge all of you to download this beta as soon as possible. I won’t be attempting it until Thursday night and it would be a big help if you all got out of my way by then.
You can read the press release.
If you just want the highlights, though, here they are:
He demonstrated how [these products] will drive innovation across the industry and support the rich ecosystem of hardware manufacturers…
Ecosystem? Honestly, do these guys even consider the meaning of the words they use? Or do they just string a bunch together that sound good? The sooner the adjective “rich” is out of the Microsoft lexicon, the better. And just how did he “demonstrate” all this?
Did I say they? Well there was only one highlight and that was a bit of a stretch.
