    Default MS Joke

    you probably heard it already, i dunno.

    Q: How many Microsoft Executives does it take to change a light bulb?
    A: 8, 1 to screw in the lightbulb and the other 7 to make sure MS gets $2 for every light bulb in the world that is changed.



    Anyone else got some?

    Huh? If something is wrong with Microsoft software, Microsoft fixes it for you. You don't (usually) have to pay for that, you just download the patch and away you go again. What's your point here?

    I'm sick of all this microsoft bashing. I do hope all the MS-bashers are people who don't use MS products - there are always alternatives, why don't you use them?

    That's my gripe for the day. Have a good one.

    Mike.

    I'd like to see a car manufacturer do that actually. It's not their fault that you never maintained (patched) your car.

    HOW THE GOVERNMENT WORKS

    Once upon a time the government had a vast scrapyard in the middle of a desert

    The Government said, "Someone may steal from the scrapyard at night." So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.

    Then the Government said, "How can the watchman do his job without instruction?" So they created a Planning Department and hired two people; one person to write the job description and one person to do time studies.

    Then the Government said, "How will we know the night watchman is performing the tasks correctly?" So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people; one to do the studies and one to write the reports.

    Then the Government said, "How are these people going to get paid?" So they created the following positions, a Time Keeper, and a Payroll Officer; then hired two more people.

    Then the Government said, "Who will be accountable for all of these people?" So they created an Administrative Section and hired three people; an Administrative Officer, an Assistant Administrative Officer and a Legal Secretary.

    Then the Government said, "We have had this organization in operation for only one year and we are $18,000 over budget; we must cut back our overall costs."

    So they laid off the night watchman.

    As per Mike, I'm sick of seeing people taking stabs at Microsoft. You should, by now, have your own impression of what Microsoft's software is like. So if you think it's bad, go to Apple or *nix.

    I mean really, Microsoft hardly ever charges money to get updates. You've got all the updates available at http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and http://www.microsoft.com/security and http://download.microsoft.com and http://office.microsoft.com - all free to download, except for any costs involved in downloading the updates, like your ISP bill.

    So, I ask you: how the hell did you get the idea that Microsoft charges you money for all those free updates? I suppose you probably counted Windows ME as fix for Windows 98, or something like that - but it's not, they are completely different operating systems, despite looking and feeling the same.

    I agree with agent
