1. It Will Be Virtualized

Huh? You mean I need to delete my VMs and wait 5 years?!

2. It Will Be Mobile

NO! I have to wait to get my notebook back too?

3. It Will Be Secured in Depth—And By Users

Crap, must remove encryption, firewall, and TCP Wrappers, cron for reinstall in 5 years.

4. It Will Be Running Windows—Maybe

Dang it! Foiled AGAIN! (goes and finds Windows restore CD)

5. It Won't Be a Desktop at All

Darn it I already gave up my notebook, now I don't even get a desktop?!

hah!
