we will get the fat out of the systems. Today's laptops have become obese. Two-thirds of their software is used to manage the other third, which mostly does the same functions nine different ways.

That's Micro$oft for you! Reminds me of the late great Douglas Adams - the unshakeable foundation of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation's success is that the fundamental design flaws are completely hidden by the superficial design flaws - or to put it another way, you are blinded to the essential uselessness of the system but the sheer joy in getting it to work at all. It does things no sane person would ever want done and then goes beep to tell you its done it!!

That all said, I don't think that the Nigerians would be running Pro Tools on one of those Rick specials. Technology is a great servant if you never let it become your master.
