Gates spends first day back at Microsoft trying to install Windows

Andy Borowitz, writing for The New Yorker:

Bill Gates’s first day at work in the newly created role of technology adviser got off to a rocky start yesterday as the Microsoft founder struggled for hours to install the Windows 8.1 upgrade.

The installation hit a snag early on, sources said, when Mr. Gates repeatedly received an error message informing him that his PC ran into a problem that it could not handle and needed to restart.

This pretty much sums up the current state of affairs at Microsoft.
