I stumbled across something I’d written a long time ago and never published. I think it’s funny enough to warrant a short series of Friday Fun posts. In this world of fake news, I’ve realized that many famous quotes are actually incorrect. I’ve corrected these quotes to properly reflect Dynamics GP or it’s predecessor Great Plains.
Since these incorrect quotes have been repeated enough that everyone believes them, this series will probably offend somebody. That’s fine, just keep it to yourself and be offended quietly. Also, consider these quotes copyrighted, since I
made dug them up. If you want them on a t-shirt, mug, or something else, that’s an option for some of the quotes. Check out the store.
It’s back to Presidents today. They are just so quotable.
“It’s about Dynamics GP stupid” – Bill Clinton
When Bill uttered this line people were aghast. It was considered insulting to publicly call the President stupid. (At the time, the President was George H.W. Bush, #41 for those of you unfamiliar with the naming convention of Bush Presidents.) The line was intended to show that the President was out of touch and it may have been a deciding factor in the election. Funny thing is, you could quote this line back to Microsoft every couple of years and it would still be relevant.
