Imagine that

I am shocked -- shocked! -- to learn that a security flaw has been found in Microsoft's new Vista operating system.

Also, Peter Gutman's detailed analysis of Vista's inherent design flaws is getting a lot of attention. Could Vista be the beginning of the end for Microsoft? The Zune disaster doesn't seem to have made much of a dent. But maybe the new year will bring with it a ray of hope that the world will at long last throw off the Microsoft yoke.

But I wouldn't bet my life savings on it.

I'm not shocked at all, in fact, I was expecting this (a vista flaw). Personally, I think they are doing this on purpose, it's their way to get back in the spotlight. I don't believe that this kind of "bad" news is going to have a dramatic impact on their sales.
But that's only a thought; maybe I'm wrong ...

You've never seen Casablanca, have you? Go to http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0034583/quotes and search for "shocked." (Or even better, rent the movie.)
