Microsoft Jokes!

Filed under: The Linux Blog News — TheLinuxBlog.com at 3:07 pm on Tuesday, August 25, 2009

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.

Why you should sign up for my RSS Feed!

Why should you subscribe to my RSS feed?

Thats a good question and there are a couple of reasons I can think of off the top of my head.

For the longest time there was an application that I couldn’t remember the name of but thought the concept was as cool as the other side of the pillow. I remembered the name once an update to that application came into my subscribed feeds. I’m not saying I’ll keep you posted on every application or update that comes out, but I may jog your memory, spark some interest in something, help you figure something out or perhaps give you some ideas of your own.

You’ll be better able to participate, tell me how good/crappy my posts are and tell me I’m wrong or stupid. Either way, participation is good!

By subscribing to my RSS Feed I can tell how many actual readers I have. This is somewhat a measure of achievement or an ego booster for me to know that I have more than one reader.

Quite frankly I think results will vary from person to person and these outcomes are all just speculations but if you feel like making me happy whilst getting some useful information go ahead and click on the subscribe button. While your at it, if you have a Twitter go ahead and follow me on that too.

Just remember to keep your RSS reader open and if you choose not to subscribe to the RSS feed or following me then consider bookmarking thelinuxblog.com, or making it part of your daily routine. If you have any questions or complaints you can always e-mail me at: owen @<thelinuxblog.com> or drop me a comment. Thanks Guys!
