WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCKING FUCK MICROSOFT?!!
I go to log into my laptop:
me: *enter the pin*
me: Ok let's try the password...
Win: WRONG PASSWORD!
me: *checking my password manager* Nope, pretty sure that's correct... Ok, whatever let's try to reset it.
me: *generates new password and resets the password for the account*
Windows: You can now log in
me: *enters the new password*
Windows: WRONG PASSWORD!
me: that's weird... let's try that again
Windows: WRONG PASSWORD!
me: Ok... reset once more *I enter the same password I generated before*
Windows: ThAt Is An OlD pAsSwOrD
me: *getting really pissed* FINE, GODDAMIT, HERE, NEW PASSWORD
Windows: You can now log in
me: *enters the new new password*
Windows: wRoNg PaSsWoRd!

The computer lags, windows 8 lags, vagrant lags, chrome lags, phpstorm lags, EVERY-FUCKING-THINGS LAGS.5
Gary Kildall. Paul Allen.
Gary Kildall should go down in history as 'the guy that envisioned Windows before Bill Gates' or rather... 'the guy that Bill Gates stole the idea for Windows from.'
Paul Allen, will go down in history as... the guy who referred to Bill as 'the devil himself', who left breadcrumbs of how evil this guy was in his code, on the internet, and elsewhere... and even mentioned in some places "If people found true evidence on Snopes.com of how 'he tricked me reverse engineering Gary's CPM code'... Bill would 'hire someone to say that shit is 'just not true'...
Gary was a successful businessman in the computer industry before Bill Gates had what you could call 'hair on his nutsack'.
It is true that Bill has made a lot of contributions to society and programming and technological achievements... but the origin story is sort of like when you 'install an operating system with invalid formatting... and then falsify or hack the boot record so that all of the data and operating system files will still boot successfully regardless...
Gary was a travelling businessman, who probably spent a lot of time having to meet clients and work himself to death... so when he wanted to take a weekend to himself? He made sure that he left the business at home. Cause that's what men who work hard should do. Then, antsy AF IBM laid out an ultimatum for Bill, "Hey, fuckin get us something by tomorrow or you'll lose out on this opportunity here."
Of course, Bill was like, 'hey, who do I know that can fuckin program like nobody's business? Yeah. my buddy Paul Allen.'
Then Bill was like "Hey, I fuckin wrote this but lost the password... can you help me rewrite this shit? IBM just offered me an opportunity to make millions and I'll split it with you 80/20. It's not that I don't know how to do math, but rather, me being a fuckin dickhead like that.
Eventually, Paul rewrote Gary's whole program so that it functioned virtually identically, and as such, "there was no need to involve Gary after Bill coerced Paul into "stealing an idea that wasn't his to fuckin take."
Bill had a lot of 'ideas that generated a lot of revenue' that like "weren't fuckin his." He might've just made em better and then used his manipulative intelligence to "force people to want the deal of a lifetime".
I'm sure during the 80's, he told a lot of people "Hey, Word Perfect is fuckin $500. I made a version that's $400. It's some legit top notch shit." meanwhile... "these idiots don't realize that it IS word perfect, I just slapped my company's name on it, cause I'm an asshole like that."
Well, Paul was Bill's patsy after that. As long as Bill stole ideas, and didn't share the origin information with Paul? Paul did as he was asked. Sort of the real genius behind Microsoft in general, RIP Paul. As far as Gary? Well, one night in 1994, before Windows 95 was released, he apparently got into a heated argument with someone and was injured so badly that he went to the hospital. Unfortunately the man 'died 3 days later'. Sort of how long it takes for Ricin to kill you too. Strange how that shit was never fully investigated.
For someone like Bill, the first question I probably would've asked was, "Hey, seems like a coincidence that you released this Windows 95 right after Gary died..." But because idiots run the world, nobody except detectives and security analysts think that there are such things as coincidences. There are... it's just that if someone punches you in the fuckin face and you wake up the next day feeling pretty sore there, you're not gonna say "Damn, feels like I got punched in the fuckin face. And, there's a huge black and blue bruise here on my face! what a fuckin coincidence !" Not unless you're what's otherwise known as "a fucking mentally challenged individual"...
Anywho... Yeah, Gary was the shit. I don't know all of the details about what happened in the 70's or early 80's, since I was like, born in 1985 and all... but... I'd venture a guess as to say "a lot of this shit is probably a little too true to believe."
Every time I talk about Bill though? I seem to meander to October 25, 2001. That's the day that the Patriot Act was passed into law... 3 records. Fastest law ever written, only law to be unanimously passed, and it so cleverly written, seems like a programmer wrote it. Strange how Windows XP was released the following day. What a fuckin coincidence!
Anywho, Paul Allen and Gary Kildall FTW. RIP you clever inspirational bastards... Hope I may someday match the legacy you both left behind... Prolly won't happen though, cause I'm kind of an asshole. In this day and age? It seems as if you really need to be if you want to be taken seriously.4
