I already knew about this, but I thought the video was pretty cool. Plus he speaks one of the best lines along the lines of something like "I didn't think I would create a cultural Icon and that the guy created it, but Bill Gates made it famous."

It's really quite sad when you think about it. I remember back in the day of Windows 95/98 how much I used to use CTRL ALT DEl till the buttons practically didn't even work. Those systems use to freeze up a ton, though I do believe that 98 was a fairly decent OS. Don't get me wrong, I don't think that Windows bashing is great, but I believe that if if Microsoft developed a more stable software that didn't require you to reboot it so much it wouldn't get ridiculed as much.

I was quite sure until almost the end of the post that you were talking about Ctrl Alt Del, the webcomic.

The funny thing about it is when you watch it, don't you get the internal feeling thats comparable to when a minion pissed of Darth Vader and was about to get choked to death?

Great stuff. I still use CAD occassionally, but it's really been helped with XP.

The untold epilogue is that as soon as that guy got home he found out his house had been foreclosed on and he was placed on the top of the terrorist watch list.
