Is Humor a Sin?

Okay, Folks, are you ready for a Windows Vista joke? It's actually a
Windows 95 joke, but I upgraded it.

Bill Gates died, and an angel was walking with him up to the Pearly Gates.
"You are going to be judged," the angel explained, "by a panel of users who
upgraded from Windows XP to Vista Premium." Gates was worried, but the
panel was very friendly.

"The Bible says that you reap what you sow," they explained, "so, since you
gave us a choice, we're going to give you a choice. We're going to let you
try out Heaven for a while, and then we're going to let you try out Hell. But,
once you choose, you can never go back. That's what you did to us." Gates
agreed that this was fair, and he went with the angel to try out Heaven.

Heaven was very nice, and everybody was satisfied with the quality.
Everything ran smoothly, and if any problems had ever existed, they had
been corrected. The view was good, and there was no real need to improve
anything. Many wise, experienced people were there, and they all advised
him not to choose Hell

Next, the angel took Gates down to Hell. In Hell, everything was
spectacular. The view was stupendous, and it was one new thrill after
another. You could do a lot more in Hell than you could in Heaven, and it
was a lot more fun. Everything was much more powerful than in Heaven,
and yet it all ran perfectly. A bunch of wild, crazy people were there, and
they all advised him not to choose Heaven.

"All right," said the angel. "It's time to choose. Remember that once you
choose, you can never change your mind." "I choose Hell," replied Gates.

Suddenly, Gates found himself burning in the flames. All around him people
were cursing and wailing. Nothing worked, and everything was miserable.
"What happened to all the great things you showed me?" Gates demanded.

The Devil answered him: "That was the beta version."

Thanks for the joke and for the upgrade. It ran fine on my machine; not one
problem.

If there is an MCSA in the person's title or, even worse, an MVP, then yes
it is a sin - a mortal sin at that if the humour is at the expense of
Microsoft (as if Microsoft couldn't afford it hardy har har).

NOTE FOR MVPs: This is a humour post. Not to be taken literally. Made in
jest alone. I'm informing you just in case you didn't couldn't take the
joke (as you are often apt not to do). Go back to your registry edits.

.....and you think I'm a fly in the ointment.

I do like your disclaimer - Keep up the good work.

Hey! I'm working towards my MCSA (then MCSE)...

Hell, I've seen MS exec's cracking jokes about Windows ME. They recognize it
as a mistake... We all make them... Well, except for Steve Jobs.

My friend Joey wrote that he ran the joke on his computer with no problem.

Thank you, Joey. Somehow, some way, I will work that into the joke the next
time I tell it.

You're welcome.

I will be honest, though: I never would have run it if you hadn't provided
the "joke upgrade advisory" first; I would have waited until some other guys
tried it first, to learn from their experience.

After checking out your upgrade advisory, I knew I would be good to go.

Thanks again.
