Microsquat says "Huh??"

Vista writes: Dear Aunt, let's set so double the killer delete select all.

What they are admitting they did wrong? Attempting to demo it onstage.

I just like to poke at Microsoft whenever the chance comes up. I'm a Mac person by choice if I get my druthers which doesn't always happen. Whoodathunk Bill Gates would turn out to be such a force for good with his charity work though?

They should just have the computer respond with, "I'm sorry, Dave. I can't do that."
