Windows 7

As anyone who follows technology news knows, the next version of Windows will be called, well, Windows 7. To me that immediately raised the specter of the seven deadly sins. Unfortunately (or fortunately), someone from Slashdot already beat me to the punch:

Gluttony: It will probably require at least 32 GB of RAM.
Envy: They keep copying other peoples ideas.
Sloth: Too lazy to fix bugs, so they release new operating systems instead.
Lust: It's hard to beat all those porn trojans.
Greed: Well, it's M$ after all.
Wrath: That's how you feel after 5 minutes of using it.
Pride: And after all that they'll still pretend it's the best OS ever...

Thanks, Qaz!
