Most ridiculous over engineered POS ever...
...I could only be talking about the boxes that Microsoft Office and Vista come in. This isn't strawberry jam. I am not thinking with a box this stupid the software has to be good. No I am thinking with a box this retarded, I need to sell off any remaining Microsoft shares I own.

I can't think of any serious products that have ever been quite this annoying. In the end I nearly put my eye out trying to pry it open. My prediction: there will be at least 5 multi-million dollar settlements dealing with people grievously injured while attempting to open Microsoft boxes.

No need to re-invent the box. I am sure someone thought they were making revolutionary new boxing that would forever change the boxing industry.

That's true, it's like when I write a story or something, I re-read it, and think it's horrible and start over. He didn't start over.

I thought this was going to be a topic about the Wii; I'm pretty disappointed.

Nah, thats more like Apple arrogance.

Microsoft just wants to make sure that you can't use anyone else's box with their products.

Re-invent? Oh come on, you know they just copied the design of some software box startup company, but had to change it enough to avoid any patents. That's why it sucks.

The sad thing is that this is probably actually true.

Roxi, my dear, this is what Usenet and Torrent are for.
