If Microsoft would only buy Disney

Thursday, March 4, 2004

Although Bill Gates says it won’t happen, here are 10 things I’d like to see if Microsoft would acquire Disney:

10. Free passes to Epcot Center for all MSDN Universal subscribers.

9. Scoble exchanges butterfly suit for Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey outfit.

8. Windows ships with “It’s A Small World After All” as startup wav file.

7. Office Assistants Clippy the paperclip and Kairu the dolphin replaced by Grumpy and Sneezy dwarves. [“For crying out loud, you still need help with the mail-merge?”]

6. “Tomorrowland” attraction replaced with “Longhornland”.

5. “Honey I Shrunk The Kids Movie Set Adventure” replaced by “Windows Build Lab and War Room adventure”.

4. Wrong memo sent to Magic Kingdom security guards - incoming patrons inspected for buffer overflows.

3. The namespace System.Drawing.Animations.ToyStory

2. Free theme park advocates build the amusement park “Lisney”. Patrons disappointed when they need to edit /etc/lilo.conf with vi before gaining entrance to the “Rural Bear Jamboree”.

1. .NET Rocks! on the Disney Channel.
