October 01, 2004  |  More on the MS slogan  |  4210 hit(s)

I ran into John yesterday, who started the discussion of the Microsoft slogan from the other day, and he noted to me that his original points had been ...

... that the slogan is lame. True, and I haven't seen anyone disagree.

... that the challenge was not to write a better slogan, but to somehow take the original one and phrase it in a less awkward way. As a kind of linguistic exercise.

So I apologies to John for getting off on a tangent (although the side discussion of better slogans was, I thought, also interesting.) The floor is still open.

Update More links to complaints about this slogan:

Their slogan. His gripe.

Microsoft's slogan

Grammar snobbery
