: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}.
