Video: 1981 Interesting interview between Steve Jobs and David Burnham. Good old press, government mentioned as enemy. (Windows XP Release in 2001) A well-known story (but not mine personally). One day a friend visited me. I mentioned that I had successfully installed Windows XP on my computer and how happy I was with it. To my surprise he threw the CD into my microwave and turned it on. I got very excited because the CD was very valuable to me, but he said "Never mind, it's harmless." After a few minutes, he pulled out the CD and gave it to me and said, "Take a good look at it." To my surprise, the CD was quite cold and somehow heavier than before. At first I couldn't see anything but then I saw an inscription on the edge of the inner hole. Something I had not seen before. The writing glowed brightly and there it was: 12413AEB2ED4FA5E6F7D78E78BEDE820945092OF923A40EE1OE5IOCC98D444AA08EI324 "There is a writing, but I cannot read it," I said to thin voice. "No, but I can," he said. The characters are in an old hex encoding, a language from Microsoft, which I will not pronounce here. But translated it means the following: An OS to enslave them, to find them all, To drift into the darkness and bind forever. These are only two lines of a verse from the system registry is known: Three OS's from corporate-kings in their towers of glass, Seven from valley-lords where orchards used to grow, Nine from dotcoms doomed to die, One from the Dark Lord Gates on his dark throne, One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them, One OS to bring them all and in the darkness bind them, In the Land of Redmond where the Shadows lie.
