Windsor is Like Dad Helping with a 6th Grade Science Project...

You remember when you were in sixth grade and you did your science project all on your own, but Sally and Billy had their fathers help them?  Your project looked like a sixth grader put it together, and Sally's project, well it looked more like a professional did it.

Sally's project looked much more professional than yours...and why was that?  Was it because Sally was just very creative and good at that kind of stuff and you weren't?  Was it because she had better access to resources to complete hers?

Most likely it looked great because Sally didn't actually do much, if any, of the work.  She may have picked a topic, but she told her dad that topic and off he went.  Then in the end, she presents the project that she picked the topic for.  Her dad did all of the work.

She told him what she wanted, or registered ideas with him.  In the end she presented those ideas.  All of the work to create those ideas was handled for her.

Windsor is like Dad helping with the science project.  And I love it!

@Dewayne: No, Windsor is not my replacement. They actually replaced me with a leaky coffee pot. I guess you could say spilling lots of coffee was my primary legacy...:-)
