    Silly Windows tricks are for kids!

    That’s because if it worked right in Windows then something obviously went wrong!

    of course it’s a failure,

    success & success => success
    failure & failure => failure
    success & failure => failure

    doesn’t howtogeek require kindergarten degree?

    It’s a joke. Get over it.

    Shhh….don’t feed the troll. ;)

    And I can’t even begin to count how many times I’ve installed Windows updates or Office, had it tell me the installation failed, and then have the Office programs or updates working fine. I think Microsoft is hiring only pessimist programmers. We’re probably not too far off from seeing the message, “your disk is half empty”.

    @Steve-O-Rama: re: “Your disk is half empty.”

    God, ain’t that the truth!

    Thanks for the (far too) early-morning laugh with my coffee.

    Since when is Microsoft hiring real programmers?
