Whether you're a Mac OS or Windows user (come on, nobody is actually running Linux), you've probably heard at least one computer-y joke about Windows. Since its initial release 32 years ago, the operating system has had quite a few bugs and Windows 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. Period. And the announcements it makes usually are worth of the best meme title. Phrases like "this won't take long" or "something happened" raise more questions than they provide answers. Not to mention the painstakingly long time it takes to load Internet Explorer properly, and that's especially annoying if you had in mind some quality time for funny memes.

Bored Panda has compiled a list of painfully funny computer memes, highlighting why Bill Gates needs to take a closer look at it. Scroll down to enjoy the entries and upvote your favorites.
