Dear Microsoft Consumers:
It has come to our attention that a few copies of the
WINDOWS XP TEXAS EDITION may have accidentally been shipped outside of the state of Texas.
If you have one of these, you may need some help understanding
The TEXAS EDITION may be recognized by the unique
opening screen. It reads: WINDERS XP, with a background picture of Willie Nelson superimposed on the Alamo.
Please also note:
The Recycle Bin is labeled "Outhouse"CHANGES IN TERMINOLOGY IN TEXAS
is called "This Dern Contraption"
Dial Up Networking is called "Good Ol' Boys"
Control Panel is known as "The Dashboard"
Drive is referred to as "4-Wheel Drive"
Floppies are "Them little ol' plastic thangs"
Instead of an error message, "Duct
tape" pops up
|Cancel - stopdat
Yes - yep
No - nope
Find - hunt fer it
Go to - over yonder
Back - back yonder
|Help - hep me out here|
Start - crank'er up
Settings - settins

Also note that the TEXAS EDITION does not
recognize capital letters or punctuation marks.
Some programs that are exclusive to WINDERS XP:Tiperiter - word processing program
