Dopey Theory: Part 2

I'm shocked at how so many people come up with so many dopey theories, while many other dopes believe them and spread them around. Keith Curtis' idea that Microsoft should can Windows and move to Linux registers a solid 9 on the dope scale.

What registers as a 10? The theory espoused by dimwit Jay R. Galbraith (not sure if he's related to the actually brilliant late John Kenneth Galbraith) from CNNmoney.com that Windows 7's success will kill Microsoft.

According to this over-educated dunderhead, having a popular fat client will keep Microsoft from putting all of its attention on smartphones and other lightweight devices and clients. This is the same nonsense spewed by Gartner recently -- that Microsoft is too slow and stupid to move to the Web, thin clients and mobile devices.

I'm not sure how Microsoft is stupid for having a fat client, while Apple with the Mac is God's gift to technology.

Meanwhile, Windows 7 is going great guns, so I guess Microsoft really is in trouble.
