> If Microsoft built the Supra

> In response to Bill's comments, Toyota issued a press release
> "If Toyota had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be

> 1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash twice a day.
> 2. Every time they repainted the lines on the road, you would have

> 5. Only one person at a time could use the car unless you bought
> "carnet," but then you would have to buy more seats.
> 6. A rival company would make a car that was powered by the sun,
> reliable, five times as fast and twice as easy to drive-but would run
> only five percent of the roads. It would be called the "Apple"
> 7. A single "General Protection Fault" warning light would replace
> the oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights.
> 8. New seats would force everyone to have the same sized ass.
> 9. The airbag system would ask "are you sure?" before deploying.
> 10. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you
> and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door
> turned the key and grabbed hold of the radio aerial.
> 11. You would be required to also purchase a complete set of
> accessories, even though you neither need nor want them. Attempting
> remove any of these would immediately cause the car's performance to
> diminish by 50%or more.
> 12. Every time a new model arrived, car buyers would have to learn
> drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in
> same manner as the old car.
> 13. You'd have to press the "Start" button to turn the engine off.
