Default con file-wierd

An Indian discovered that you can never create a folder anywhere named as "con" or even rename an existing file as "con".
This is something pretty cool...and unbelievable... At Microsoft the whole Team, could not answer why this happened!

Try it out yourself...
check this 2\
1. Go to "English page"
2. Type "failure" (without double quotes) in the search text box.
3. Press "I'm Feeling Lucky" button just next to "Google Search"
4. See what happens. Find it out yourself and laugh a lot. (Do not
worry, its not going to harm your computer.)
5. Share it with your friends and relatives before GOOGLE fixes this
