The OS in the Bible

Not that I want to offend anyone, I do want to tell you about the qoutes that I found predicting windows in the bible.

Isaiah 54:12 And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones.

In Isaiah the cloudly startup screen is mentioned, including the emotions we have when we unvoluntairly come across it again:
Isaiah 60:8 Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?

Crashes occured in the Biblical Beta version too.
Genesis 8:2 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;

The functionality of the Heavenly Update was doubted and probably wasn't supported because of the monopoly.
Kings 2 7:2 Then a lord on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, Behold, if the LORD would make windows in heaven, might this thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.

Nevertheless, people were gratefull for Windows.
Daniel 6:10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.

The Internet and it's bandwith problems are described as well.
Malachi 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

Some of you say that I took the above texts out of His context. But I hope you'll forgive me, like you forgive the system adminitrators. And like my father always says: Windows is a mystery of God that we accept gratefully.

I enjoy seeing Isaiah 54:12 appearing as quotes in newsgroups.
