Poet's Bukowski customer feedback

America's great poet Charles Bukowski has this 70's poem, just after he could afford to buy things. He lived marginally most of his life before becoming famous.

We are slightly better today, after the product management fixed all the problems that made Bukowski go desperate thirty years ago. In the process, we created the Silicon Valley, the bubble and many of the biggest millionaires in the world.

Now, as then, the wind still blows and the turkey buzzard struts and flounces before his hens in the spring. It the armony we seek when using products

We want products that imitate nature in the way we live with them and we use them


16-bit Intel 8088 chip


with an Apple Macintosh
you can't run Radio Shack programs
in its disc drive.
nor can a Commodore 64
drive read a file
you have created on an
IBM Personal Computer.
both Kaypro and Osborne computers use
the CP/M operating system
but can't read each other's
handwriting
for they format (write
on) discs in different
ways.
the Tandy 2000 runs MS-DOS but
can't use most programs produced for
the IBM Personal Computer
unless certain
bits and bytes are
altered
but the wind still blows over
Savannah
and in the Spring
the turkey buzzard struts and
flounces before his
hens.
