How Bill Gates counts to ten

  • Funny-made me laugh.
  • But the humor only works if you succumb to “What you see is all there is”.
  • The list leaves out Windows 98SE and Windows ME.
  • Windows NT and 2000 were business operating systems that were later merged with the consumer operating system to create Windows XP. NT and 2000 were not linear successors to Windows 98, by any means.  Indeed, NT was shipping two years before Windows 98 was released!
  • Shared into my FB feed, this poster is not really propaganda so much as an attempt at humor. As humor, it works, but alas, like propaganda, it relies on errors, omissions and logical fallacy to work.
