Microsoft: Share your Pain


[Media: Video]

At first I thought this video was a serious one, a commercial for developers or customers. But despite the straight faced seriousness, this video is a piece of satire.

Claiming that their new Windows "feature" is an option to stab, shock or bash the programmer who caused your computer to crash. Microsoft has developed new chairs for their programmers so that the users can "Share their pain" with the programmer who caused the bug.

Although funny, as a programmer I feel slightly offended that users would hold programmers in such contempt. But, programmer or not, everyone should check this out. Watch for the ejection option.
