Recently one of my friends, a computer wizard, paid me a visit. I mentioned
that I had recently installed Windows on my PC, told him how happy I was with this operating system and showed him the Windows CD. To my astonishment and distress he threw it into my micro-wave oven and turned it
I was upset because the CD had become precious to me, but he said "Do not
worry, it is unharmed." After a few minutes he took the CD out, gave it to
me and said "Take a close look at it."
To my surprise the CD was quite cold and it seemed to have become thicker
and heavier than before. At first I could not see anything, but on the
inner edge of the central hole I saw an inscription, in lines finer than
anything I have ever seen before. The inscription shone piercingly bright,
and yet remote, as if out of a great depth.
"I cannot read the fiery letters," I said. "No," he said, "but I can. The
letters are Hex, of an ancient mode, but the language is that of Microsoft,
which I shall not utter here. But in common English this is what it says"
"One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them
One OS to bring them all and in the darkness bind them."
