Talking Why MS called their os Windows

I figured it out. Microsoft called their operating system Windows cuz they were refering to how you would want to throw your computer that was running windows out the window. Also it is like a open window cuz their are so many security flaws.

Only at Microsoft do you have to wait for 40 minutes on hold and then when you finally get through do they tell you to call back in 30 minutes cuz they are performing maintainance at the current moment.
Only at Microsoft when you call to activate your software do they have a disclaimer that says "This call may be recorded for legal purposes"

I gathered this info through really experiences with microsoft

I get so bored with the microsoft jokes. They are such an easy target.

The best one by far is:

Computers are like air-conditioning. Works great, until you open windows.
