Found that posted elsewhere ....really liked it so i thought i'd share it with you ...... "Recently one of my friends, a computer wizard, paid me a visit. As we were talking I mentioned that I had recently installed Windows XP on my PC. I told him how happy I was with this operating system and showed him the Windows XP CD. To my surprise, he threw the CD into my microwave oven and turned it on. Instantly I got very upset, because the CD had become precious to me, but he said: 'Do not worry, it is unharmed.' After a few minutes, he took the CD out, gave it to me and said, 'Take a close look at it. What do you see?' To my surprise, the CD was quite cold to the touch and it seemed to be weightier than before. At first I could not see anything, but on the inner edge of the central hole I saw an inscription, an inscription finer than anything I had ever seen before. The inscription shone piercingly bright, and yet remote, as if out of a great depth: 12413AEB2ED4FA5E6F7D78E78EDE820945092OF923A40EElOE5IOCC98D444AA08E324 'I cannot understand the fiery letters,' I said in a timid voice. 'No but I can,' he said. 'The letters are in Hex, of an ancient mode, but the language is that of Microsoft, which I shall not utter here in the light of day. In common English this is what it says: "One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them, One OS to bring them all and in the darkness bind them." These are but two lines from a verse long known in Systems lore: "Three OS's from corporate kings in their towers of glass, Seven from valley lords where orchards used to grow, Nine from dotcoms doomed to die, One from the Dark Lord Gates on his wight-wrought throne In the Land of Redmond where the Shadows lie. One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them, One OS to bring them all And in the darkness bind them, In the Land of Redmond where the Shadows lie." All I said was "Eeeep!"
