Whether you're a Mac OS or Windows user (c'mon, nobody is actually running Linux), you've probably heard at least one Windows joke. Since its initial release 32 years ago, Windows has had quite a few bugs and updates, all of which caught the users at the worst possible time. Completing a homework assignment that's due in an hour? Displaying an ad on a screen on the street? Too bad, the operating system will restart. Now. And the announcements it makes usually don't help, either. Phrases like "this won't take long" or "something happened" raise more questions than they provide answers. Bored Panda has compiled a list of painfully funny Microsoft Windows jokes, highlighting why Bill Gates needs to take a closer look at it. Scroll down to enjoy the entries and upvote your favorites.
