- Would the car industry advance as fast as computers, the car would cost one dollar and would run a million km with one gallon of gasoline.
- Would the transport advance so fast as your company, we would have to buy a new car each time when one builds a new road or even draws a new line at the pavement.

  • Here is the company C of computers; they master:
  • Per each two years, their PCs run twice faster.
  • Here is company S of the soft; they work hard as plowers,
  • So, each new release runs 0.7 times slower;
  • The soft is to run at the user's PC,
  • Which is made, of course, by the company C.
  • Here is user U, buys from C and from S,
  • the newest model and the latest release.
  • U presses some key, say, key number K;
  • The soft S responds, with some delay,
  • during some time, say, during time t,
  • to let user U to have some tea.

  • How many releases per year does sell S to U
  • to let him have tea, while he has nothing to do,
  • just waiting response by the soft to key K,
  • keeping the same time t of delay,
  • neutralizing the efforts of company C
  • to run faster U's task at his modern PC?
  • This problem above is not correct, because
  • The tea-concern, together with C, of course,
  • support the efforts of the company S
  • to make even bigger the newest release,
  • To force U buy more tea and a newest PC,
  • to boost business of C and the concern of tea.

The poem was written comparing the performance of MAPLE-10 with previous versions.
