Microsoft gives out Ferrari’s (laptops, not the cars) but not to us!

December 28th, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

OK this isn’t fair. Yeh I’m jumping on the bandwagon here because I want and/or need a new laptop and I’m having a world class hissy fit because of it. *sigh*

According to Alexa Traffic Rankings:

So Mitch Denny (the latter of the two addresses) gets a free laptop with free Windows Vista Ultimate installed on it… even though he’s not as heard of as us. It’s not fair, we didn’t even get *one* to share. OK it’ll be hard for me and Patrick to share as he’s literally half the world away, but has anyone heard of Remote Desktop? I do think so.

My conclusion - it’s not fair. I’ve worked with the Windows Live teams in the UK, Patrick E works for Microsoft, Joseph and Jabez are both MVP’s, Patrick S is just a geek but we love him none the less, Dean’s a geek also but he’s bloody good on the web, and Andre, dear Andre, the ultimate in bug submission for Windows Server 2003 R2.

If you’re from the team that decided to send out laptops to these guys – we respect your decision. However could we have one pretty please, as we’ve given so much to your organisation and we expect very little. We’ll love you lots and lots? 🙂

    Jordan beat me to it .. yes, it would have been nice (and you guys deserve a free laptop more than I do 😉 — I just bought that nicccceeee new ThinkPad that IMHO is better quality than an Acer but……) Nowhere does it say anything in life is or will ever be fair.
