I Thought People at MIT Were Supposed to Be Smart

Brad King’s defense of Windows Vista might be the dumbest thing I’ve read all year:

But that misses the point: computer code is meant to be broken because from that unjoined code comes personalization that no company can give me. And Microsoft understands better than Apple that broken is better than perfection.

In other words, Vista is better than Mac OS X (and, presumably, XP) because it’s actually worse. Brilliant. The more broken the better! Punch me in the face! Kick me in the nuts!
