Title: Windows jokes
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on June 24, 2016, 07:30:08 am
Judging by how Quora forces everyone to register, validate and login in order to view answers to questions, if Quora owned Microsoft, then this is what the Windows 10 upgrade nag screen would look like:

(poking fun at forced sign-ups, forced upgrades, upgrade nags and such crap here)

Yeah I got a reply in like 2 hours max (most likely not a bot since it was far from instant). They most likely didn't even read past that part in the fake BSOD. I thought it was hilarious, though.

So Notepad.exe only has 1 level of undo/redo, even the Windows 10 version.

Meanwhile, MTV Music Generator, which came out on the Playstation 1 in 1999 (as Music 2000 in Europe), has over 12 levels of undo.


You had one job, Microsoft.

Notepad is probably the most basic app you can do on Windows. If you know Win32 APIs, it's probably been done in 5 minutes and the codebase probably hasn't been changed since Windows 2.0.
