I'd be a lot more concerned with Windows 8 than the Mayan calendar. It sounds like it's everything I don't want in an operating system. What's up with those folks in Redmond? Don't they understand some of us use computers as tools, not entertainment. My company is still using XP. We're about to roll out Win 7 and I'm not looking forward to the churn this will cause my system. Yeah, the IT folks have been testing 7 for over a year, blah, blah, blah, but with every "upgrade", there is ALWAYS pain and suffering, especially with the engineering tools which the IT folks understand the least.

Remember the Hale Bopp comet? I estimate about the same number of people are concerned with rolling the Mayan calendar over to Ver 2.0.

But what about Dark Matter and Dark Energy? They can't be up to anything good! NASA's keeping mum on this and I, for one, expect that there's a dark satanic conspiracy at the root of it. NASA's ďWhy the world didnít end yesterday" is probably just a cover-up to shield us from the real truth that ancient reptilian aliens, disguised as human, are exploiting the earth for their own financial gain.

The world actually ended at midnight on Dec 31,1999 (ie just before Y2K). However, most people were too drunk to notice....

Wait, I thought the end of the world already happened, May 21, 2011, right?

I guess the possibility of the calendar just starting over escaped the gloom and doom people. I guess they missed the part about the calendar being 5200 years before it resets. Much ado about nothing, really. People act like the sky is falling. Didn't we go through that with the Y2K idiocy?

Like this briefing and it makes so much sense, just wish it were available to higher distribution media points... Keep up the great work
