Bill Gates reportedly

 Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry
and stated that :- "If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has,
we would all be driving twenty-five dollar cars that got 1000 miles to the gallon."
 In response to Bill's comments, General Motors issued a press release stating:
If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the
following characteristics:
  1. For no reason whatsoever your car would crash twice a day.
  2. Every time they repainted the lines on the road you would have to buy a new car.
  3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason, and you would
     just accept this, restart and drive on.
  4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn, would cause your car to shut
     down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.
  5. Only one person at a time could use the car, unless you bought"Car95" or "CarNT".
     But then you would have to buy more seats.
  6. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, reliable, five times as fast,
     and twice as easy to drive, but would only work on five percent of the roads.
  7. The oil, water temperature and alternator warning lights would be replaced by
     a single "general car default" warning light.
  8. New seats would force everyone to have the same size butt.
  9. The airbag system would say "Are you sure?" before going off.
  10. Occasionally for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse
      to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle,
      turned the key, and grab hold of the radio antenna.
  11. GM would require all car buyers to also purchase a deluxe
      set of Rand McNally road maps (now a GM subsidiary), even
      though they neither need them nor want them. Attempting to
      delete this option would immediately cause the car's
      performance to diminish by 50% or more. Moreover, GM would
      become a target for investigation by the Justice Department.
  12. Every time GM introduced a new model car buyers would have
      to learn to drive all over again because none of the controls
      would operate in the same manner as the old car.
  13. You'd press the "start" button to shut off the engine.
