Continuity is good . . .

LAST WEEK, a friend bought a new Canon inkjet, and hooked it up to his Mac with OSX 10.3 — and it wouldn't run until he upgraded to 10.31 or whatever. He's not alone, MS Vista provided lots of non-compatible hardware problems, too, so I wouldn't want people to construe that I was Mac-bashing.

That being said, on the whole, MS has done an amazing job on continuity over some 23 years. Don't believe it? Check out the video. Ah, old autoexec.bat and config.sys and win.ini! Great song. I miss Reversi, great game, I don't miss VGA and 360k floppies.
