“Yep. Aero (the Vista graphical rendering engine) is the technological equivalent of Jessica Simpson. Damn nice to look at; hell, nice to do a lot more with I am sure. But long-term relationship material? Hell No! Once you get past the initial attraction and the novelty of something new and exciting, all of her annoying little traits (like being dumb as a frickin’ post) start to grate. It starts as a small gnawing in the back of your mind – the feeling that you know you’re lowering your standards. A little Jiminy Cricket is sitting on your shoulder silently judging you every time you look past the obvious flaws.”
