Poème japonais version SONY

In Japan, Sony Vaio machines have replaced the impersonal and unhelpful Microsoft error messages with their own Japanese haiku poetry. Each only 17 syllables. Ingenious!

Windows NT crashed. 
I am the Blue Screen of Death. 
No one hears your screams. 

A file that big? 
It might be very useful. 
But now it is gone. 

The Web site you seek
Can not be located. 
Countless more exist. 

Chaos reigns within. 
Reflect, repent, and reboot. 
Order shall return. 

ABORTED effort: 
Close all that you have worked on. 
You ask way too much. 

Yesterday it worked. 
Today it is not working. 
Windows is like that. 

First snow, then silence. 
This thousand dollar screen dies 
So beautifully. 

With searching comes loss 
And the presence of absence: 
"My Novel" not found. 

The Tao that is seen 
Is not the true Tao, until 
You bring fresh toner. 

Stay the patient course. 
Of little worth is your ire. 
The network is down. 

A crash reduces
Your expensive computer 
To a simple stone. 

Three things are certain: 
Death, taxes, and lost data. 
Guess which has occurred. 

You step in the stream, 
But the water has moved on. 
This page is not here. 

Out of memory. 
We wish to hold the whole sky, 
But we never will. 

Having been erased, 
The document you're seeking 
Must now be retyped. 

Serious error. 
All shortcuts have disappeared. 
Screen. Mind. Both are blank.

IMAGINE... Micro$oft... (John LENNON) 
Imagine there's no Windows,
It's easy if you try.
No fatal errors or new bugs
To kill your hard drives.
Imagine Mr. Bill Gates
Leaving us in peace
Imagine neverending hard disks,
It isn't hard to do.
Nothing to del or wipe off
And no floppy too
Imagine Mr. Bill Gates
Sharing all his money oooh...
You may say I'm a hacker,
But I'm not the only one.
I hope someday you'll join us
And your games will fit in RAM
Imagine 1-Giga RAM
I wonder if you can.
No need for left-shifts or setups
And no booting again and again.
Imagine all the systems
Working all life-time
You may say I'm a hacker,
But I'm not the only one.
Maybe someday I'll be a cracker
