Well FoRK is so quiet these days that I might as well inject two
quotes for your enjoyment.

>Clustering NT machines is like strapping together two Ladas to get
>the reliability of one Mercedes.

and from an Infoworld piece about "the higher segments of the server market":

>"Intel is not losing to the competition because the chip is slower,

I also liked one which I can't find now along the lines: Windows is to
Unix what a comic strip is to a book.

Seems like the general press are no longer just saying what their
advertisers want to hear, they're telling it like it is: not only does
the emperor have no clothes, he's a naked tyrant...
