It's not a joke, it's a new kind of scam that involves a scary message in order to take money from the users.

Viruses, worms, spyware, malware and now scareware ! I'm glad I don't use Windows anymore.

I know it is true...  Smiley

The joke is that:
Quote
Users are "duped into (...) paying for software they don't need".

Coming from Microsoft, it's a bit rich!

Get it? Microsoft suying people who sell useless software? Hum?

"The nice thing about Windows is - It does not just crash, it displays a dialog"

Microsoft: "You've got questions. We've got dancing paperclips."

"Linux is not user-friendly. It _is_ user-friendly. It is not ignorant-friendly and idiot-friendly."

"Microsoft is not the answer. Microsoft is the question. Linux is the answer"

"Computers are like air conditioners -- they stop working properly if you open WINDOWS"

"Failure is not an option -- it comes bundled with Windows."
