Sorry, that was NOT a typo.

I've called it "Exploder" for a LONG time - deliberately.

Like I usually refer to the author of Exploder as "Micro$loth".

Y'know, I was thinking of posing the question of whether certain spellings of names of products of the company of Bill Gate$ ought to be in a separate category from the truly unintentional typo.

Hey, clowns789! How about compiling a list of "unofficial" spellings of words and product names/trademarks that are associated with the Bea$t of Redmond? Folks can post them here, or gather them from elsewhere and PM them to you, and once you have a decent list you create a sticky of the list, occasionally updated?

The version I have commonly seen (and indeed used) is simply Micro$oft.

Micro$oft is likely more common, but I prefer Micro$loth 'cause the Bea$t is so slow to respond to problems....

I use Microshaft once in a while.
And I've seen Windoze used by others.

I've always felt bad about using the name Microsoft. I mean what kind of guy names his company after his own private parts?

Winblows

and Windows CE can be abbreviated WinCE.

What happens when you combine Windows ME, Windows CE, and Windows Nt? You get Windows CEMENT
