The Lyrics

Here's one for all the non-iMac users, which, uh, ah, I am one of but not for much longer...
Every time that I re-boot I'm cursing your name
Running Windows Vista it has caused me much pain
"It is so much better" was your one refrain
Now I'm stuck with a frozen screen just racking my brain
If you show your face you will be booed by the masses
I can't use my PC 'cause of you it always crashes

Why'd you do me wrong
Why'd you do me wrong
Why'd you do me wrong
Why'd you do me wrong

Tell you where to go
Tell you where to go
Tell you where to go
Tell you where to go

William Gates William Gates
You are the man everybody hates
William Gates William Gates
You are the man everybody hates
William Gates Billionaire
Uses an iMac when no one's there
William Gates Billionaire
Uses an Apple when no one's there

Tell me what it's like to be a man at the peak
Did you think you'd be so rich yet still be a geek
Windows will it ever work, a patch will I see
Can I hope to save my data or should I format C:
Is it meant to crash like this I'm just a bit hazy
Or is it a feature meant to drive us users crazy

Why'd you do me wrong
Why'd you do me wrong
Why'd you do me wrong
Why'd you do me wrong

Tell you where to go
Tell you where to go
Tell you where to go
Tell you where to go

William Gates William Gates
You are the man everybody hates
William Gates William Gates
You are the man everybody hates
William Gates Billionaire
Uses an iMac when no one's there
William Gates Billionaire
Uses an iMac when no one's there

I approve of this... I'd vote even higher if it weren't for this pesky BSOD!

I'll give you 5's but hope Softie is not tracking this on me.

Nice resurrection of a classic from my high school years, the good old days before we heard of the internet, and we wrote our songs on paper and played them on vinyl. Still have my copy of "Superstar".

I don't know how to score him, hoping three 5s don't bore him...etc ;D

At the risk of being non-PC: His mamma was a banksta heiress, well-connected w/the Rockefellers. They were the biggest shareholders of IBM & threw their weight around to get DC as well to use his rip-off of CP/M.

Good stuff, particularly the "Uses an iMac when no one's there" line.

Here's one for all the non-iMac users, which, uh, ah, I am one of but not for much longer... Excuse me? All non-iMac users? Because some non-iMac users have Linux in preference to ₩inblows.
