And yet again Ms has demonstrated their astounding lack of class,

for if they had any at all they would have called it Windows 2001, and

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining
armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological
chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling
second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.
