Holy cow, I wrote a book!
In beta versions of Windows XP,
there was special code in the window manager to give every window
a link in the upper right corner called
which if clicked
on displayed a dialog that allowed you to submit feedback to Microsoft
about that window.
Since this was a beta release,
there was no anonymity when you submitted feedback.
(You signed away your anonymity when you agreed to the special
beta license agreement and typed in your beta ID number.)
Yet we got more than one feedback submission that begin,
"Hi, I pirated this copy of Windows XP, and here's some feedback."
In its initial incarnation,
the word in the title bar was "Lame",
but people with a weaker sense of humor changed it to the less
The name "Lame" came from a recurring sketch on
local comedy show
called "The Lame List, or What's Weak This Week
(brought to you with the help of Seattle's Heavy Metal community)".
