I was talking to a Patent Attorney in Houston today. I had never talked to him before. About twenty minutes into our conversation he announced, “Hah – I found your blog – I knew I knew you! You are the guy that was so pissed at Microsoft.”
Yes. I hope I’m not forever known as the guy that got pissed at Microsoft though. I use Microsoft products every day – even though I have recently added a little bit of Linux into the mix. I *like* Microsoft products. I use a lot of them. I run Windows on most of the machines in my house/business. I know Windows. I have decades invested in it. I know how to make money off of it – and that’s important to a consultant. I gotta eat.
It’s not surprising that a company I rely on so much will piss me off now and then.
We often get more angry at those that are closest to us. It’s natural.
But just to be clear – I am not pissed at Microsoft. Sure, I was. But I’m over it. I’m more interested in something else now.
