The Biggest Problem With Windows

The most brilliant clandestine guerilla marketing tactic EVER in the history of the computer industry. This is the front window at an Apple store. Can't you just smell the opportunity, and geniusii, inside? Ostensibly, this is supposed to be a display for an Apple Hi-Fi display or something or other. But I think it's a subliminal slap at Redmond's baby. As in...Windows = Broken. How freaking BRILLIANT is that?

I’ve been thinking about this for a while, and I’d like to get some confirmation on this. So post up your thoughts. Don’t be shy.

Windows has a big problem.

No, it isn’t Vista.

No, it isn’t Apple.

No, it isn’t Linux.

I think that Windows biggest problem is…Windows.

Or more specifically, windows.

Even in this Amazing Technicolor Dream World of 24” widescreen UWXVGA+++ screens x 2…

I still find myself spending an inordinate amount of time shuffling layer upon layer of windows!

It disgusts me the sheer amount of time I literally waste in a given week moving/resizing/minimizing/maximizing windows.

But I have an idea. A pretty good idea I think. About a way to totally and completely erdicate that. Well, at least knock it down by roughly 95%.

So I guess this is my first big huge massive vaporware announcement.

If you want to beta-test this when it reaches that stage (sorry, no timeline yet), then post a comment or shoot an e-mail to truckfullofninjas AT chrisrue.com. I can’t guarantee everyone a spot, but I’ll do the best I can to get every one in who wants in.

And in case you just missed it right there…

TruckFullOfNinjas = the official codename.

Just wait’ll you see THAT t-shirt!
