I like that analogy, but I'd suggest a more appropriate twist.
Developing an app on windows, and then wanting to yell at someone when
it doesn't work right, is probably more akin to beating your head
against the inside of your coffin, after you're 6 feet under - It hurts,
you can't be heard screaming, and you're pretty much doomed. But then
again, by writing that windows app, you were digging your own grave, so
it's hard to say you shouldn't have seen it coming...
