About that "Windows Pucker"...

Here's one from the internet archive:
March 3, 2003 | Sam Hiser, a technologist who spends much of his time promoting open-source alternatives to proprietary software, has an interesting way of describing the main difference between Microsoft's Windows operating system and Linux, its open-source competitor. "It's something I call the 'Windows pucker,'" Hiser says. "That's the feeling Windows users get when they're about to open a fifth program and they're so worried, they're clenching up their butt cheeks because they just don't want the system to lock."
Tearing the page right out of the Scott McNealy playbook from the Disarming School of PR.
