Origami Project?


You know, it’s frustrating when you don’t know what something is even when you work at the company making/doing/owning the website about it.

    Before I’m attacked as an OSS/FSF zealot, I would like to say that I dislike Microsoft mainly for its executive practices. I also dislike the fact that Windows has for a long time been such a monopoly that it has been fairly stagnant. That being said, this looks pretty sweet. If the ad on the Deutsch website is legit, and it has the fingerprints of MS all over it, this will definitely be a step in the right direction. I, unfortunately, have experience with Microsoft products, and will believe the UI aspect when I use it myself. I mentioned OSS/FSF because “FREE” is used throughout the ad. This is supposed to be some “brand new” product, and an adoption of OSS/FSF ideals would raise eyebrows, especially with the executives’ stance toward IP, OSS/FSF, and MS’ competitors. I think this “oragami” name adequately describes it as in you can “fold it to your needs” or “a simple paper can be a beautiful crane.” I’ll be interested to see this. MS going Open would surprise me (for the better), but I remember that, in the words of Captain Spock, “Only Nixon could go to China.”

    My wife and I were watching the vid and trying to enumerate features.  When she saw the guy get out of the SUV (Jeep, whatever) and stick the bud in his ear, she guessed "metal detector."

    I’m soooo getting one.
