I labelled this as Part 01 because who knows, I may do a running series.

Just came from a 'pot luck' -- I hate pot lucks, but that's not part of the reason to write.

My wife gives me a hard time for not entering into conversation with people and cites that as a reason I never have a good time at such events.

So tonight, I decided to 'enter in'.

One of the guys that I DO know said something about Silverlight, mentioned I was involved with it and asked the guy he was introducing to me if he was familiar with it. All his 23 years of work and social skills came into play as the first thing out of his mouth was "I hate everything Microsoft does".

Alright... now there's a conversation starter... sorta like a turd in the punch bowl.

I asked what OS he used every day at work. He said Windows XP. I nodded my head and told him that I'd rather spend my time programming for something that had a larger probability of being sold or used than for some niche market.

The conversation was over at that point because I truly would rather count the holes in the ceiling tile until it's time to go home and get something real to eat than to waste any more time with such a social idiot.

Color me pissed.
