     Top 10 Ways That Life Would Be Different If Microsoft Built Cars: 
     10.    New seats would require everyone to have the same size butt.
     9.     We'd all have to switch to Microsoft Gas(tm).
     8.     The U.S. Government would be GETTING subsidies from an
            automaker, instead of giving them.
     7.     The oil, alternator, gas, and engine warning lights would be
            replaced by a single "General Protection Car Fault" warning light.
     6.     Sun Motorsystems would make a car that was solar-powered,
            as reliable, five times as fast, but would only run on 5% of 
            the roads.
     5.     You would constantly be pressured to upgrade your car.
     4.     You could only have one person in your car at a time, unless
            you bought Car '95 or Car NT; but then, you'd have to buy more 
     3.     Occasionally, your car would just die for no reason, and you
            would have to restart it. For some strange reason, you would 
            just accept this as normal.
     2.     Every time the lines on the road were repainted, you'd have to
            buy a new car.
     And the number one way that life would be different if Microsoft built 
     1.     People would get excited about the new features in Microsoft
            cars, forgetting completely that they had been available in 
            other brands for years. (Hmmmm...)
