Meaning of MICROSLOTH WINDOWS

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

/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.
