Elon Musk Trolled Microsoft on the 20th Anniversary of Windows XP
Another day, another troll tweet from tech billionaire Elon Musk, this one directed at the software giant Microsoft.
Musk merely said "Macrohard>>Microsoft" in the tweet, mocking the software giant.
Elon Musk's now ex-girlfriend Grimes sent out a similar post, except it was accompanied with a slew of NSFW photographs on her Twitter account.
What's more amazing is that this happened exactly 20 years ago, on October 25, 2001, when Windows XP was originally launched to the globe. Was this a fluke or part of a well-thought-out plan?
Elon Musk responded to his tweet by saying, "Although Teams is quite excellent," praising Microsoft's video-conferencing tool.
People on Twitter, as usual, responded in the most bizarre and perplexing manner conceivable. Some wisely brought up Macintosh in the discussion.
Windows XP is the most recent version of Windows.
It was my first Windows operating system, as would be the case for the majority of today's readers. It would undoubtedly make us nostalgic, with its harmonic starting and shutdown sounds and the soundtrack to Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 that would be the go-to audio file for testing speakers on a new, freshly set-up PC.
How can we forget the bright blue and green taskbar with the 'Bliss' wallpaper, which demonstrated how Windows could be colorful and entertaining after the previous incarnations' dreary color schemes?
Windows XP was a runaway success from the start, with 17 million copies sold in the first two weeks and over 400 million sold in the first five years.
Apart from listening tunes on Winamp and browsing the Internet Explorer before Chrome blew my mind, my favorite memories of Windows XP were playing Space Cadet 3D Pinball and occasionally even Spider Solitaire.
