This is it? A 7-year-old joke page at Microsoft's expense?

It's an appropriate counterpart to the seven year old Apple-bashing blog, but I can't get sufficiently wound up about either of them.

OK, so who's going to do the Linux bashing thread for the trifecta?

Nerds just aren't funny. Geeks, on the other hand...

it even opens up with a nazi photoshop job. I honestly thought that web sites decomposed faster than this.

If you replace the S with a $ it makes it look like they're only interested in your money!

It saddens me that the ST/Amiga wars died down before the dawn of the web.

Oooh, that's some intelligent scripting: I get an annoying JavaScript alert telling me I'm not running IE and then it tries to serve me a pop up.

I dont' think I laughed at these jokes even when they were fresh. Now, it's just kinda sad....

If it wasn't for Microsoft we would all be living in straw huts using typewriters, fax machines, Macs, and other such primitive instruments.

"I also design webpages"

There is no comment ironic enough to follow that.

So a spinning beachball and a blue screen walk into a bar…

Bartender, my friend's feeling a bit blue. Give 'em a "Sex on the Beach." And while you're at it, this round's on me.

I liked the bit where he made fun of Microsoft.

Well, that's just brash.

Oh the 90's. I miss Bill Gates being the comic villain, Clinton sex jokes, the whole lot.

America after 9/11 is like Season 2 of The Wire; we're all waiting for the "Bush" story line to end and for Avon and Stringer to come back.

OK. I hate myself. But the blue screen of death image with Clippy made me chuckle. I couldn't help it!

"Created with Adobe PageMill" really made my day.

The Deej, you mean this one? I liked that, too, but the Windows 95 base makes it clear just how dated this is.

Yep, Kirth, that's the one. Somehow I had never seen it before. Comedy gold. An error saying the previous error had a problem, but Clippy is right there to help by yet again confirming the error. Maybe soon after is when he pops up with "It looks like you are writing a suicide note..."
