Windows We're really on the subject of software installation issues on OSNews lately, and this story, making its rounds on the internet, fits in quite well. Back in the day, during the antitrust lawsuits against Microsoft, Microsoft had to make a whole slew of corporate email public. In light of Gates' imminent withdrawal from Microsoft, SeattlePI dug up a little gem among these emails, one in which Bill Gates goes on a full-blown rant about the difficulties he had trying to download and install Windows MovieMaker, back in 2003.

Even better. Imagine the coked up Jobs (Disclamer; It seems the behavior presented if not the recreation chosen at the time but that's not a claim of fact by me) of the early years. Those years when he'd show up to interviews barefoot and kick the applications that wore suits out half way through..

Oh man I'd love to be a fly on the wall just to watch that. "And then Jobs snapped.. he lost it.. he fakes the developer out with a kind comment and a left hook then circles right.." hehehe.. this is going to keep me giggling all day..
