Get ready folks, Microsoft is getting ready to crash your cars !! Read this recent news release on the partnership between MS. Of course, it is a peripheral system and might not interface with the car's onboard computer, well, at least for now. However, I am sure MS has long -range plans of writing the OS for future cars and making us all dependent on its software - do you see any parallels now?
I am happy for GM ! The senior management is going crazy at Ford and sooner or later, a Ford car equipped with MS's software is going to crash because MS installed buggy software and there was no time to hit the ctrl+alt+del button, and therefore indirectly GM will be better off, with one fewer american kid on the block, in its fight against the Japs.
