In the beginning, there was the IBM Selectric, and lo, the Lord saith: Let there be memory and let it reside upon a card of holes. And the Selectric begat the Wang Word Processor, and the Lord saw that it was good.
Then, saith the Lord, let there be applications, and He brought forth upon the earth the IBM PC. But the PC was not sufficient unto the Lord, for saith he, Let there be an operating system. And the Lord created DOS.
And The PC begat the AT, and the AT begat the XT, and the XT begat the 286, and the 286 begat the 386, and the 386 begat the 486. And in the time of his innocence, man computed.
The Lord said to man: Do not eat from the tree of Apple or all will be lost. And man did not eat at first, but the temptation was too strong, and man ate from the Apple and his eyes were opened.
So man created Windows to use the fruit of the Apple upon the PC, and thus came forth Windows 95. And the Lord was full sorrowful, for Windows 95 was weak and pitiable and full of bugs. But in his arrogance, man tried to imitate the Lord and create Updates.
And thus Windows 95 begat Windows 98, and Windows 98 begat Windows ME, and Windows ME begat Windows 2000, and Windows 2000 begat Vista, and the Lord saith to man:
Well, now you are well and truly fucked. Good luck with it.
