Bill Gates Blew Up Skype

Bill Gates tells all his operating systems to download updates and restart.
As a result, a major world-wide communications company crashes for two days.

From the official Skype blog:

The disruption was triggered by a massive restart of our users’ computers across the globe within a very short timeframe as they re-booted after receiving a routine set of patches through Windows Update.

It’s time for Meg Whitman to boot up Bill Gates. A hard boot.

  1. Hi, thanks for dropping by.
    Codinghorror – interesting that your updates wanted to run during your presentation!
    And the Apple link was nicely understated. Well done.
    Since you’re new, and perhaps others are too. I have a mantra that is certainly well known around our house.
    Bill Gates is a Prick.
