Microsoft has begun preparing the groundwork for the release of it's next-generation operating system, called Windows Vista by unleashing a series of Windows XP patches that will gradually dismantle the previous operating system. Windows Vista, the soon-to-be-released and highly anticipated operating system will then be built out of the detritus of orphan code the old operating system will leave behind.
Development engineers, when asked to comment replied, "Here at Microsoft, our company philosophy is 'Try not to make things worse'. And so, in light of this, we will be constructing the new operating system out of mostly recycled Windows XP code. This will make sure that the new operating system, if anything, won't be any worse than Windows XP."
