<abuse, operating system> /mi:'kroh-sloth" win"dohz/ (Or "Windoze",
/win'dohz/) A derogatory term for Microsoft Windows which is so limited by
bug-for-bug compatibility with mess-dos that it is agonisingly slow on anything
less than a fast 486. Also called just "Windoze", with the implication that you
can fall asleep waiting for it to do anything; the latter term is extremely
common on Usenet.
Compare X, sun-stools.
