The Microsoft Direct3D team have a pretty impressive collection of old GPU's:

When you are the team behind something like Direct3D, you need many different graphics cards to test on. And when you’ve been doing this for as long as we have, you’ll inevitably accumulate a LOT of cards left over from years gone by. What to do with them all?

Microsoft's Killer W7 Patch: Breaks Networking, Flags Legit PCs as "Not Genuine"

Windows 7 admins are calling this week’s Patch Tuesday a disaster: new updates are not only bricking Windows 7 devices with a "Not Genuine" Windows license error, but there’s also a bug blocking administrator access to remote shares on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7. "Once again, Microsoft has released patches and updates that have broken parts of Windows."

Microsoft’s fonts catch out another fraudster—this time in Canada
Will these people never learn?

You'd think that people forging documents would have learned by now. Canadian Gerald McGoey was judged to have falsified documents in an attempt to protect certain assets from bankruptcy proceedings because—and stop me if you've heard this before—the documents used Microsoft's modern "C" fonts, which didn't become widely available until 2007. This would have been fine were it not for the minor detail that the documents were dated 2004 and 1995. Whoops.

The dangers of using "reply-all" :lol:

So how many messages were sent?

First there were the basic messages – that’s 13,000,000 messages.
Next there were the receipts – 200 users, 13,000 receipts – that’s and additional 2,600,000 messages.
So about 15.5 MILLION messages were sent through the system. In about an hour.
