I hate Windows. And especially Vista.

Oli: "I want to delete this file." Vista: "Do you really want to delete this file?" Oli: "(No, i just asked to annoy you...) Yes i want." Vista: "You need special rights to delete this file." Oli: "Well, whatever..." Vista: "Do you want to grant these special rights?" Oli: "Yes, i want." Vista: "You can't have these rights. Sorry, you can't delete this file." Oli goes nuts and kills computer.
