John on his blog: One of James famous marketing stunts was passing out Windows 95 Sucks Less T-shirts to the ever cynical developers at an Apple conference ahead of a much anticipated but buggy new Apple OS release, scoring much developer goodwill for the good humored competitive jab from Microsoft. " Kraig Brockschmidt in Mystic Microsoft: " For example, there was a rather jovial technical evangelist in Developer Relations by the name of James Plamondon.His specific focus was wooing Apple Macintosh programmers to instead concentrate their energies on Microsoft Windows... " He hired two well-known Macintosh developers for the job, shamelessly promoted the seminars, and printed up, as rewards for completing the seminar, simple T-shirts that read (in a blatant rip-off of T-shirts that Apple had made) "Windows 95 Sucks Less. And even though he went about 500% over budget on all this, his contribution to the world of fashion at least won the Best T-Shirt of 1995 award from Computer World, a weekly trade magazine.
