Proponents of the open-source software development model are using the Windows Vista and Office 2007 shipping delays as an example of how Microsoft's software-engineering process doesn't work well.

2. There's an espresso stand at the grotty Albertson's down the block from our house where I often get coffee in the morning. This Monday, I bought a pre-paid card for 12 lattés, which set me back $36. This morning, the stand had a huge handwritten sign up [á la Clerks] announcing that they had to unexpected close down Tuesday instead of Saturday as planned. WTF? No coffee for me - and the only other place on the way to work not only doesn't do drive-through, but serves the worst coffee this side of Plano.

4. I've been able to drink some good wines lately, but mostly I've been concentrating on the stuff that might not be so good, which is annoying. I keep opening bottles of stuff and finding out that they're really, really bad. The only good stuff lately has been a Barossa shiraz [it's like candy, kids] and an Eyrie pinot noir from Oregon that really should have been a lot better than it was, but was still mostly okay.
5. Do me a favor? Could you leave me a comment letting me know what this image is supposed to represent?
