Bill Gates Celebration
 
Well it is that time again this year. I heard on the radio on the way to work this morning 10-28-02 that it is Bill Gates Birthday, I think in celebration we should format and install Linux on many systems today.

Also to comemerate the occasion feel free to post any anti Bill jokes you want. Have fun at Bill's expence :-)

I heard that prior to Microsoft, it used to be called a dollar note.
Hehe! OK, so I am that sad as to find that funny! :D

I got an idea, print out a bunch of blue screens of death and mail them to him, or some destroyed windows cds.

Actually according to bill's home page he likes burnt light bulbs, so why don't we send some to Redmond. And here comes how many Bills is required to change a light bulb? I'll be waiting for answers.

Microsoft had revenues of US$28.37 billion for the fiscal year ending June 2002, and employs more than 50,000 people in 78 countries and regions.

Although I'm not so MS friendly, the bold part gives you guys something to think. Everything has 2 sides.
[CENCORED] birthday Bill, keep employing!

In answer to how many bills it takes to change a lightbulb, its so hard to tell becouse you used to use the intregrated function in changelightbulb.exe but it was upgraded to change~1.com to evade the virus's , but noone really knew where the file went when they renamed it so they came out with an update that cost's $599.95 and is already outdated by the new release of lightbulb changer 2003, which was unfortunatly hacked by linux users because they wanted to use the code, or so microsoft said. But anyways for a small fee of $799.96 you can now own a new version of windows called the microsoft pg edition that comes standard with the lightbulbchanger.exe which if you look deep enough in the documentation is the same one that was free in the first place but now costs $899.95 (cost went up since I started typing )

In conclusion I don't know how many bills it takes to change a lightbulb because I don't have the money to buy the program to tell.

P.S. Windows pg edition stands for "Pretty good Edition"

Is it a professional version of Windows Really Good Edition

Actually thats where I got my idea for the "pretty good edition" Oh and just as a sidenote, I love your quote neo77777 "Microsoft: "You've got questions. We've got dancing paperclips.""

At a collage campus I worked at for awhile the computer professor used to say he couldn't believe that microsoft could dare even imply that a paper clip is smarter than he was.
