It’s a federal holiday today so you can look forward to a whole lot of soft news: predictions, explanations, funny videos that serve no real purpose and, my favorite, lists. And golly gee, here’s a list of the top 25 tech flops, as compiled by InfoWorld.

Highlights—or should I say lowlightslol—include virtual reality, Gnu Hurd, the Apple Newton, the paperless office and Vista.

The number one flop is sort of a letdown, so make of this list what you will.
