Microsoft Jokes!

I’m not normally one to just flat out bash Microsoft or trash them for their flaws, but sometimes I do enjoy a good Microsoft Joke.

Here are I know off the top of my head:

Q: How many Microsoft Engineers does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: None its obviously a hardware problem

A helicopter was flying around above Seattle when an electrical malfunction disabled all of the aircraft’s electronic
navigation and communications equipment.

Due to the clouds and haze, the pilot could not determine the helicopter’s position. The pilot saw a tall building,
flew toward it, circled, and held up a handwritten sign that said “WHERE AM I?” in large letters.

People in the tall building quickly responded to the aircraft, drew a large sign, and held it in a building window.
Their sign said “YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER.”

The pilot smiled, waved, looked at his map, determined the course to steer to SEATAC airport, and landed safely. After
they were on the ground, the copilot asked the pilot how he had done it.

“I knew it had to be the Microsoft Building, because they gave me a technically correct but completely useless answer!”

They’re terrible I know… Terribly *FUNNY*. Post your favorite Microsoft Jokes in the comments or tweet them to @LinuxBlog and I’ll include them here.

The helicopter joke is modified from the original:

“A pilot was ferrying two important businessmen from an airport near Portland to Redmond, WA. According to the weather forecast, there was a 10% chance of light showers. They were very wrong, for a severe thunderstorm hit the area, crippling the aircraft’s navigational and communications systems. As he was searching for a landmark in the thick fog, he noticed that his fuel gauge was almost on empty. The pilot saw a nearby skyscraper, and so he opened his window and screamed ‘Where am I?’ to which one of the workers replied ‘You’re in a plane.’ He then executed a 270 degree turn and performed a 3-point landing at the airport. When asked how he did it, he replied, ‘Easy, the worker gave me an answer that was absolutely true but entirely irrelevant. I knew, therefore, that it must’ve been the Microsoft tech support building. The airport is only a few miles away.”
