vent!

 

Frankly, this scares me. Taken directly from microsoft.com (a long time ago).

[Image text: Watch TV on your computer. With WebTV for Windows, you don't have to choose between life as a couch potato and a mouse potato.]

What exactly does this mean? I think I can guess what a mouse potato is, but why would I want to? Is that the new demographic for the nineties and beyond? Do I *have* to choose between being a mouse potato and a couch potato? Is that all my 'life' would be if I used Windows 98? What if I don't watch TV? I don't like these choices. I don't like the idea of life as a couch potato or a mouse potato. That's not life! I may use the computer often, but I am sure as hell not a 'mouse potato'.
