Alexandre Juillard from the Wine project was interviewed on the December 17 episode of LugRadio. When asked whether he thought Microsoft did a good job designing Windows, his response was “Oh, no. Definitely not. No, no. It’s a huge piece of crap and we find more crap every day.”
The Wine developers probably have a better understanding of Windows’ internals than anybody outside of Microsoft. Anybody that has used Windows for an extended amount of time already knows that Windows is crap, but it was interesting to hear the thoughts of someone with deep technical knowledge of Windows’ inner workings.

I just completed all of my holiday shopping without leaving the comfort of home. And thanks to the Nokia N800, I was able to do part of it while laying on the couch. In the past few years I have done the majority of my shopping online, but this was the first time I did it all online. No traveling. No crowds. No droneing, repetitive Christmas tunes. Assuming UPS can deliver the packages correctly (those odds have been about 50-50 lately), this year’s shopping will be completely hassle-free. Yay!
The Big 12 Conference can count another whiny football coach among its ranks. Bo Pellini has been named head coach of Nebraska. Bo Pellini, if you recall, was the coach that accused Kansas State’s Bill Snyder of running up the score on the Huskers in 2003.
In case you are wondering, the other whiny coach is Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops.
