THE entire Windows operating system has been a vindictive practical joke since its inception, Bill Gates has admitted.
Following criticism that upgrades to Windows 10 used a ‘nasty trick’, Microsoft boss Gates confessed that at this stage he wanted to be caught.
He continued: “To be honest, it hasn’t really been that funny to me since Windows 98.
“Back in the Windows 95 days, when people were lining up at midnight to drop $200 on a PC operating system, I was pissing myself pretty much constantly.
“But after a while the endless gullibility of the public failing to spot all my clever in-jokes about how aggressively unusable the software was just depressed me.
“I mean when people still bought it after Windows Vista, which was one long drawn-out fart gag, I had to accept I wasn’t a clever satirist but the victim of my own bad joke.
“It doesn’t fucking work! How can you not get that?”
Fellow tech entrepreneur Mark Zuckerberg said: “I thought I was holding a distorted mirror up to the world to confront them with their own ugliness. Turns out they love it.”
