I Give Up. Windows Is Proof That People Are Too Stupid To Use Computers.

Feb 13, 2009, 15:01 (29 Talkback[s])

"Microsoft Saddles Up the Posse!
I saved the best story for last. I am NOT making this up! Microsoft itself, the richest software company ever, famous for having a cash hoard of tens of billions of dollars, famous for spending billions of dollars developing Windows and yet still can't code its way out of a soggy tissue, is offering a reward:

"Microsoft Rounds Up Posse to Nab Conficker
""In a worldwide effort to bring down what experts warn may be the worst malware now facing the Internet, big names from the computer industry, academia and law enforcement are teaming up to go after the Conficker worm....Microsoft is coordinating an effort to cut the worm off at its head -- offering a $250,000 reward for information resulting in the arrest and conviction of those responsible for launching Conficker on the Internet...""

"I guess if they actually do track down and punish the author of Conficker, the eleventeen-hundred thousand other Windows worms, Windows Trojan Horses, Windows viruses, and other Windows malware will all vanish."
