Windows TP – the telepathic operating system (part 3)

Microsoft denies link to loss of programmers

While acknowledging that such a typographical error would have undefined results at run time, and that error trapping in the compiler was not totally comprehensive, a Microsoft spokesperson denied that the recent demise of several Beta testers was linked to a typo they may have made while using the EXECUTE_PROGRAM_IMMEDIATE API using Neural C.

Such a typo has been linked in persistent rumors surrounding the as yet unreleased product Windows TP. It is reported to have occurred when programmers using the EXECUTE_PROGRAM_IMMEDIATE API inadvertently typed EXECUTE_PROGRAMMER_IMMEDIATE.

Internal sources who wished to remain unnamed commented, This is BETA software after all and bugs are to be expected, We cant trap every error a user may make, and Any one who uses undocumented calls is on their own!

Microsoft did say that it was unlikely that this problem would be addressed before release 2.0. So far, we have not received a single bug report from a Beta tester experiencing this problem, so we do not see this as a critical market issue.
