I just thought I'd relay a funny story I heard on television a couple days ago. I searched the internets to verify the story, as true.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
It seems that this past weekend there was a huge New Technology Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Any body who is anybody, in the technology world was there, with booths demonstrating their newest techno-stuffs.
Companies were showing the new Android and several of the new touch-screen, internet active cell-phones and hand-held devices.
Of course, Microsoft and Apple were there giving Demos of their new Operating Systems, as was Google.
Well, in one of the big auditoriums there was a presenter from MicroSoft demonstrating the new Windows-7 Operating System.
Apparently, the demonstrator was using an H-P laptop with Windows-7 on it, and he was using the Convention Centers Sound and Lighting System to project 'his' desktop onto the main screen for all to see.
At some point in the middle of his Demo of Windows-7, he clicked the wrong button on his controller, and the Windows-7 Demo switched off and 'his' true desktop environment showed on the screen.
To his embarrassment it took him a couple minutes to get the program running again, and he continued with his Demo.
What the spectators saw when the program abruptly stopped, was that while the presenter was showing a Demo of MS Windows-7, his laptop was actually running Ubuntu. And Windows-7 was in Virtual Box.
After, the Demo Presentation was over, he opened the 'floor' for a Question and Answer Session. The first 10 questions or so were about Ubuntu. They failed to mention, if this presenter, 'still' worked for MS?
