This was snapped by my wife in a Chinese resto behind our home in Dalian:
What a fine looking 75 year old, even if I say it myself!
Now that I have praised my look, I can unload on Win 7 and it’s application ware. Why did I ever abandon Macs? Beats the hell out of me! Win 7 and its app sphere is a piece of junk now and will always be. It is a perfect reflection of the wrong headedness of Gates and Ballmer. They will never get IT, like Steve does!

- “Microsoftâ€™s Ballmer Unveils Win Phone 7” and related posts (blogs.barrons.com)
In my mind it begins with the image of Steve Ballmer heaving chairs, which is either a myth or too true to type. Then there are those ads that now maintain the a desirable PC is all about size of RAM, Hard Drive et al. Now there is the new ad for IE 8.0 and it reeks of fear-mongering to a ditzy female PC user who appears stupid and half mad.
And then there is Microsoft big and bad!

Ballmer: Windows Is Still RelevantBy Saul Hansell
Steven A. Ballmer, Microsoft’s chief executive, began the year of Windows 7 Wednesday night at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
After a tepid response to Windows Vista, which was introduced just two years ago, Microsoft wants to assert that a new version of Windows is something computer users should get excited about. Mr. Ballmer announced that a beta, or test, version of the new operating system will be available to the public this Friday. (It will be at Microsoft.com/windows7). The final release is still nearly a year away.
These days I am an active user of OS/X 10.5, XP home and sometimes even Vista. But the only OS’s that I like using are OS/X and Google anything. Poor rich and whiney softies seem to be looking for some kind of gentle understanding.
Oh, Win 7 should be great, you wish!
