Humor It has been making waves on the net for a few days already, and I don't want to keep anyone deprived from this utter piece of brilliance. "Mommy, why is there a server in the house?", a children's book made by Microsoft to 'help your child understand the stay-at-home server'. "Big people have a server at the 'office'. The office is a big place where people go and do boring things." Not everybody will appreciate the twisted humour, but I sure do. Utterly brilliant, this. Update: There is more!

I'm stunned that there are people here that thought that site or the book was funny. I just sent a link to someone to make the point that MS just can't come up with a good idea. It reminds me of the Windows 386 promo video - http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4915875929930836239

I don't get it, why can't they do something that isn't lame? Surely they have enough money to hire smart, creative people. I guess it's true that money can't buy taste.
