This is I think now my favorite email ever. It’s over 1,000 words of ranting about how utterly useless Windows is:
I decided to download (Moviemaker) and buy the Digital Plus pack … so I went to Microsoft.com. They have a download place so I went there.
The first 5 times I used the site it timed out…
they told me that using the download page to download something was not something they anticipated…
I went to Windows update. Windows Update decides I need to download a bunch of controls…
You know this story doesn’t end well. And of course by now you’ve guessed who the author is.
Todd Bishop asked Gates about the email:
As for the message, Gates smiled and said, "There’s not a day that I don’t send a piece of e-mail … like that piece of e-mail. That’s my job."
He gets paid millions of dollars to write funny ranting emails? I want that job!
