Great writer

There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire
to become a great writer. When asked to define "great" he said,
"I want to write stuff that the whole world will read,
stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level,
stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!"

He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.

The thing that bugs me most about Microsoft error messages is the stupid button they put at the end:
(X)

There was a malfunction. Your computer is toast. All your files are about to be trashed and your printer set alight.

[ OK ]


How come they never, ever think to offer a [ HELL, NO! ] button?
