Awwright, here's a comment, possibly worthwhile...

Not only is the stuff old, it consists of a whole bunch of disconnected
comments that attribute human desires to inanimate objects, to software
or to "the market." The number 95 was clearly selected in emulation
of Martin Luther, and because the authors had only half a dozen things
to say that were possibly worthwhile, much inflation was necessary.
Maybe the 95 was also supposed to invoke thoughts of W95, in which case
they should have added three more when W98 became available.

Perhaps it would be good to end discussion of this stupid topic and
return to the main business at hand, which is How Do I Convince Possible Clients That They Need Tech Writing and that they need *me* to do it
for them?
