Re: 25 worst tech products of all time.

Unfortunately, it shows it's bias. #1 should be any version of Windoze.
Here - look at number 6 -

"Few products get accused of killing Christmas for thousands of kids, but that fate befell Disney's first CD-ROM for Windows. The problem: The game relied on Microsoft's new WinG graphics engine, and video card drivers had to be hand-tuned to work with it, says Alex St. John. He's currently CEO of game publisher WildTangent, but in the early 1990s he was Microsoft's first "game evangelist."

Hmm, this wasn't Disney's fault - it was Microsoft's WinG. Swell.

Sorry, but I think the wide spread of use of Windows has held P.C. development back by at least 8 years.

Re: 25 worst tech products of all time.

I would consider that Disney's fault for using a video technology that wasn't widespread....

Well, Bob, even if annoying as all hell, worked. ME was such a craptastic turd there was no hope.

You gotta admit though, the system restore feature did work pretty well. In fact, that's probably the only part of it that worked
