In a press release issued today, Microsoft asked Apple to move over slightly as the company was having a hard time seeing Tiger.
Microsoft indicated that it was currently working on Longhorn, due in 7-10 years, and that its work was being impeded by Apple standing in front of the 30-inch Cinema Display showing Tiger and blocking its view.
“Longhorn will provide a state-of-the-art interface that brings usability to a new level,” the company said.
“Provided Apple gets its fat ass out of the way and we can see what we’re shooting for. God! Would you move?!”
Apple did not directly respond to the request, but sources close to the company indicate that it has moved even closer to the screen, using more of its body to block Microsoft’s view.
“Apple is not in the least interested in complying with Microsoft’s request,” the source said.
“They can spring for the $500 to become an ADC member and get a copy to look at. Sheesh.”
However, all indications are that Microsoft intends to stick to its request that Apple move over.
Responding late today to Apple’s move to block its view of the screen, Microsoft sighed heavily and said loudly “Ex-cuse me! Excuse me! Trying to see! Hel-looooo?
“Oh, that is so rude!”
