Microsloth Windows

Microsloth Windows: /mi:'kroh-sloth` win'dohz/ n. Hackerism for
   `Microsoft Windows', a windowing system for the IBM-PC which is
   so limited by bug-for-bug compatibility with mess-dos that it
   is agonizingly slow on anything less than a fast 486.  Also just
   called `Windoze', with the implication that you can fall asleepm
   waiting for it to do anything; the latter term is extremely common
   on USENET. Compare X, sun-stools.
