Someone who is Danish (the source of the famous tale) got a littleupset when
I said that because it's an "emporer", not a king.


The point of the post, among more obvious things such as a reality check
(hopping beyond the MS-funded and MS-generated hype), was to rebut some
accusations by Wong and co. (other apologists and critics). Many people have
called Vista a service pack with eye candy (or something along these lines).

There's also this one from March.


I wasn't aware of similar opinions at the time.

Best wishes,
