Last Friday we had the 26th Microsoft Company meeting and celebrated Microsoft’s 30th anniversary. As a member of the Macintosh Business Unit I got to attend. Microsoft rented the SafeCo baseball stadium for the 7 hour meeting and it was cold. It was fun. I’m overall pretty sure my underwater stock options will come up gasping for air, eventually. So that’s good.
Part of the tradition is that everyone brings, hats, shirts, noise makers etc. to distinguish which tribe or team you’re a part of. The MacBU was no different in this aspect, and we got the rebellious slogan, “go ahead, mac my day.” all lower case at no extra cost. In the test team, we came up with some other slogans, that didn’t make it on the shirt, but that I thought I’d share for your enjoyment:
I love my Jobs
I have a good iWork-iLife balance…
On the other side of the fence, the grass is always greener. So are the Apples.
I work with iPods
My Software runs on a Mac. Does yours?
My Office is prettier.
Guaranteed not to run on Vista
Turn up the AAC!
An Office for the rest of us
Uniting the world: Macintosh, Unix, Intel, Microsoft
Always nice to work with a bunch of Mac heads. 🙂
