Vista to Ben: Don't Call Us, We'll Call You

This has to be among my favorite Vista error messages. It just raises so many questions:

  • Are you sure Apache stopped working? From the server log, it hasn't.
  • How on earth are you going to diagnose this problem? Wouldn't you like to have a bit more to go on, like what the heck I was doing?
  • "Windows" is going to contact me? As Microsoft the company? Or as in my Windows, along with running my operating system, is going to busy researching this problem, and when it finds a solution, I'll be the first to know.
  • And how are you going to notify me? Via another popup? E-mail? Phone? Singing telegram?

I just read the message as (with a NY accecent):

Yeah, ya know, something went wrong. But don't you worry, we gots our team on it. So you don't call us, we'll call you. Yeas, as soon as we have a solution, you's be the first to know....Should have it solved by never, how's never work for ya?
