Windows XP is incompatible with Windows XP

I had to go through an excruciatingly lame ethics “course” for my employer that was really a slide show. The only challenge was figuring out which button or link to take next since their interface was horrendous, but that didn’t take long. There weren’t even any questions; I could have ignored all the text of their fit-for-elementary-school tale.

Before I could look at their ethics tale, I had to convince the web server to let me see their crap. In the process, I received a turd that I have tried polishing for you, but the poor fonts and scaling mean you may have to take the link to read it.

System Compatibility Check

System Compatibility Check

One of the computers I use at my job still runs Windows XP. The claim that it isn’t optimized enough shows whoever wrote the error doesn’t know the meaning of optimized. Even better is the suggestion that instead of running Windows XP, I should try running Windows XP. To get this far, I had to use Internet Explorer; the installed Firefox was too new according to the server, but I’m sure it would have worked fine. I tried to print the error page, but IE choked, quit responding to events, and crashed three hours later.
