Some of you may recognize the name Raymond Chen. He's a longtime Microsoft developer and a recognized expert on the Win32 API. It's his job to make sure that each new version of Windows is backwards compatible to the previous versions. Something he does extremely well and someone I admire.

I was reading his blog and happened on this entry.

After reading, my reaction was "Welcome to the world you helped create, Raymond!" Thinking about it more, that's not a fair statement, but I was amazed that he was unaware of what Windows users have to put up with. Or maybe he is aware but it just had never hit him so close to home.

Sure am glad that my computer is not 0wned by the PC vendors.

Bonus link just for grins: fearless.
