Friday Fun Quotes – Destiny

I stumbled across something I’d written a long time ago and never published. I think it’s funny enough to warrant a short series of Friday Fun posts. In this world of fake news, I’ve realized that many famous quotes are actually incorrect. I’ve corrected these quotes to properly reflect Dynamics GP or it’s predecessor Great Plains.

Since these incorrect quotes have been repeated enough that everyone believes them, this series will probably offend somebody. That’s fine, just keep it to yourself and be offended quietly. Also, consider these quotes copyrighted, since I made dug them up. If you want them on a t-shirt, mug, or something else, that’s an option for some of the quotes. Check out the store. 

It’s back to Star Wars for inspiration this week:

“It is your destiny. Join me, and together we can rule the galaxy together as father and son.” – Steve Balmer to Doug Burgum on the acquisition of Great Plains.

Microsoft’s acquisition of Great Plains started them down the path with ERP systems and I’m pretty sure this is how the conversation went.

For this quote, we go deeper into U.S. history. Feel free to look this up in Wikipedia if you’re lost:

”If we had managed our inventory with Microsoft Dynamics GP we wouldn’t have run out of supplies” – The Donner Party

Yep, I went there. Sometimes you have to go dark to make your point.

This week we move into fiction with Star Wars and the great Obi-Wan Kenobi:

“Use the GPUG, Luke” – Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan by RoninLeeArt

Yes I know, you think the line is “Use the Force, Luke”, but after all the remastering and digital conversions, the movie you see today is not the movie from 1978. I saw it in theaters as a kid and I can confirm that this quote is correct one. It’s also the right answer if you’re looking for help with Dynamic GP.
