    That is funny!
    Especially the line about M$ being a non-profit organisation.

    Aah, phew, for a moment I thought that this was for real when I read the topic title.

    Rofl XD, "Get burnt... with MS Firefox 2007" (on the box). Great stuff.

    I saw the slogan: Get burst...with MS Firefox 2007 on the box :eek: :thumb: :thumb: :-*

    I think Get BSOD....with MS Firefox 2007 would better describe the situation. :D :D :p

    Stephen King couldn't have thought up anything more scary than that....:D

    But don't think it couldn't happen.........Vista will run a close second....in fact Vista has quite a few of those attributes already.....Sole use of M$ Security Software for a start.....now there's scary for you....:D :D :D....
