This might have been mentioned. Yet when Apple was at Commodore, to see if they were able to sell the Apple-II to Commodore and then get hired, and at the same time, demanded money on top. And Jack Tramiel had to show them around as they were guests. Jack said: You might sell computers to the classes, but we sell to the masses.

Sidenote. Jack was a hardcore businessman that wanted to buy in large bulks, and produce computers as cheap as possible, in order to pass the savings on to the consumers directly. He saw Jobs as a young punk that thought too highly of him self. And why not... Looking at the fact that Jack was a survivor of Auswitch, then I kind of see why he thought that Jobs had his life given on a silver platter. You know... Raised in a safe world and not pursecuted by nazi's and put in a death camp. And that is why Jack had this thought of it was ok to make money, yet at the same time give back to the free world, that had saved his life.

So yes.... You might sell to the classes, yet we sell to the masses. That ended up as "We sell to the masses, not the classes".

I think this Microsoft commercial say's it all "Make trouble and good things will happen to you".

That's why they call it the "Personal confuser".

If you want simplicity in your life, Recycle your PC's and just use an iPad.

Hah, reminds me of a parody from the Win95 days.. There was a little joke program which displayed that red message, slightly changed. :)
Instead of saying "Sie können den Computer jetzt ausschalten" (German; You can now turn off the computer) it said
"Sie können den Computer jetzt ausschlachten" (You can now salvage the computer). Haha, good ol' times.. ^^

Edit: Some typos fixed.

Not exactly famous, but there was an error message in some multimedia software Creative Labs shipped with their MMUKs: Picture not is appopiate fomat (Seriously! "Picture not is appopiate fomat"!)
I forgot exactly what software (it MIGHT have been Encarta, but it may have been a different CD-ROM based encyclopedia). The message came up when trying to play videos from the disk and was related to having the wrong codec.
