FREAKING annoyed

So the opening ceremonies for the 2008 Olympics are going on right now. I go online to check out the schedule and I notice that they have video. I’m estatic. Sometimes the coverage sucks and sometimes I miss things I want to see because I’m at school or whatever. Then I notice that I can’t play it. I’m on my laptop that has linux. Then I notice that you have to have Vista in order to watch. Forget annoyed. I understand them doing something wonky so that linux can’t play. Linux gets marginalized all the time. I figured I could find a fix or watch on my desktop. My desktop has XP. Except that none of the computers have Vista. Vista is a crappy OS. I don’t know ANYONE except my family across the freaking country who has Vista installed.

I realize that this isn’t something imperative. I realize that this is an experiment. But it’s a freaking Microsoft experiment. Microsoft is using Olympics coverage to encourage people to buy their CRAPPY OS. *breathes*

I’m so so so ANNOYED.

But damn this opening ceremony is gorgeous.
