Blogzilla exposes some Windows source code

Update: I notice lots of people coming in to this page from Google searching for “windows source code”. Whoops, sorry, but this isn’t the place to get the actual source or any real news on it. Do stay and look around if you’re interested though :)

Blogzilla takes a look at some Windows source code derived from “unnamed sources”.

if( application.language == JAVA ) {

set_speed_step_factor( 0.50 ); // decrement clock speed to 50%
set_crash_probabilty( 0.80 );

if( application.toolkit == SWING ) {
render_speed( UNBEARINGLY_SLOW );
start_idle_task(); // start an invisible process to consume CPU cycles

In other news, Dilbork, everyone’s favorite geek comic, has a strip on Mozilla.
