Something us Dutchies tend to call Windows is "Windhoos", which is a big gust of wind. I guess it's supposed to imply that Microsoft sells air, or something.

Also, there's Microsoftie, which is crap, since Microsoft isn't exactly a softie.

But on average, most of these silly things aren't worth mentioning.
