"May I please test Longhorn Beta 1?"
You’ve got to love the enthusiasm surrounding Longhorn. In the words of one of its beta coordinators:
“This is the first time in 10+ years involvement with customer beta programs that I’ve received an unsolicited bribe to get on the program– two pounds of inscribed chocolate showed up at my office via Fedex today.”
The chocolate was shared far and wide – I’ll bet it satisfied at least 1 or 2 mid-afternoon sugar cravings :)
(To be clear, this was not from the manufacturer of said sugar-buzz-inducing-decadence.)
