Running Windows - Song For Fun

Song of Running Windows
(To the melody of Billy Joel - The Downeaster Alexa)

Well I boot this machine running Windows
And God knows just how long it will take
Though I never believed in a God yet
And if I did this machine He'd forsake

I had three crashes and a blue screen yesterday
And since last Friday all the mail has stayed away
It's life as usual but I can't help wonder why
For alternatives we do not even try

Instead I try to make do running Windows
And yes I can, more or less, most of times
I have learned to avoid many problems
But I'll be damned if I'll call it alright

My OP list has a length nobody knows
I know that bug is there, but where I can't disclose
There ain't much future without switching to NT
But I've got users in Heilbronn who count on me

So if you see my machine running Windows
On the 'Net searching drivers or games
Don't winnuke it and tell me, 'Use Linux!'
Man I'd love to but I can't escape (yay-ho...)

And now I fight my machine running Windows
Every day, every night of the year
And I miss that ten-year-old Atari
Cause it never unnerved me like here

I must close now, there is work left to be done
And though programming used to be a lot of fun
It now is tedious, that's the price I have to pay
For being a programmer in 1998 (yay-yay-yay-ho...)
