'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the home

Not a creature was stirring, not even iPhone;



WebCam attached to the laptop with care,

In hopes that St. Nicholas could not help but stare;



The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

With sugary white earbuds attached to their heads;

And mamma with her 'touch, that I helped AppTapp,


Had just settled down for a lil' winter nap,

We noticed the the power strip had just gotten fatter,

I broke away from iSnake to see what was the matter.

Away to the dock I flew in a dash,

Tore into Vista--did not even crash.

As the password was entered I just had to know


If this was the update they've been calling 2-0,

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,

From the smoke came a Segway, spreading good cheer.




With a little old rider, that so loved his mods,

I knew in a moment it must be the Woz!

My mind clearly full of questions to ask,

It seemed not the time to take him to task.

And while I in no hurry and Woz in great haste,

I asked if he'd tell Steve, "THEY WANT COPY AND PASTE!"



More rapid than eagles his helpers then came,

And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

"Now, OJ! now, MacMan! now,
HondaMaker!

On,
Wildonrio! on Termleech! on MacGirl!"

"On, Griffinaz! on,
KNK! on, iPhonian! on, Mernst

On, Youngbinks! On, Gcvt! and all of the rest!

To the dock! To the dock near the wall!

An update is coming, an update for all!"



His Segway all charged and ready to run,


Woz summoned his helpers, "We ain't close to done!"


But I heard him exclaim, ere he rode out of sight,


"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night."

Awesome!

If you made that yourself, which I have no doubt you did, kudos, That was awesome.

Merry Christmas!

BTW - I love this part:
"Now, OJ! now, MacMan! now, HondaMaker!

On, Wildonrio! on Termleech! on MacGirl!"

"On, Griffinaz! on, KNK! on, iPhonian! on, Mernst

On, Youngbinks! On, Gcvt! and all of the rest!

Sure you can show it.

And thanks for the Thanks!

Also, while I did write the OP, it was of course based on the classic original from way back when.

Mike that was extremely well done and very awesome. I don't think I could have possibly come up with anything that good, no matter how hard I tried. I now have something good as my desktop. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

Heh, pretty funny. I hate Vista, so I'm glad you poked fun at it "not" crashing.
