    My experience around IT people has shown...

    that the more they like vista the less competent and knowledgeable they
    are...

    Its a good way to judge if for example a future IT employee is good enough
    for your company.,

    Just ask him if he likes vista.. If he says its great, then make sure you
    never see him again.


    Tip: if you are looking for a job and someone pops you the vista question,
    think twice before you answer!

  3. What you really mean is:

    The more they like Ubuntu the more brain damaged they are. Just FYI

    By the way, Bink, your job at BestBuy in the Geek Squad area is pretty
    secure for the moment. They do have one request though, make sure when you
    come to work, have a clean diaper on. The smell really gets to the
    customers.

    Just FYI.

    Boy, Vista's been around six months and you've already come to that
    conclusion as to what it says about people?
    Before Vista, what was your hiring litmus test? If a potential employee
    liked XP was he out of luck in your case?

    It seems to me that one of the problems Windows has been up against from the
    beginning is that it gets swiped at from both sides. There's the view best
    expressed by the PC/Mac commercials, where Windows users (even pre-Vista)
    are shown as being stuck with a system where they constantly have to deal
    with these little tweaks and quirks. Finding and installing drivers,
    adjusting this, playing with that, rebooting, reinstalling etc. A Mac is oh
    so simple, the commercials say.

    Then there are folks attacking it from the other side, saying Windows is a
    Fisher-Price operating system, too much like the mindless Mac operating
    system, not giving users complete control over what it is their computers
    do.

    I'm not accusing the OP of taking part in this. It's just that his/her post
    reminded me of that subject. I don't care if people attack Windows; that's
    their prerogative. It just seems to me that lots of times the critics team
    up and attack it from opposite sides. A Mac user who finds any flavor of
    Windows too complicated to deal with would be overwhelmed if they had to use
    Linux, for example. Yet, Linux and Mac users don't seem to mind joining
    together to bash Windows. Just doesn't seem like a very fair or illuminating
    battle.
