Windows Errors in Haiku

In the wake of the Federal anti-trust suit against Microsoft, Sony has announced its own computer operating system now available on its hot new portable PC called the Vaio. Instead of producing the cryptic error messages characteristic of Microsoft's Windows operating systems, Sony's chairman Asai Tawara said, "We intend to capture the high ground by putting a human, Japanese face on what has been -- until now an operating system that reflects Western cultural hegemony. For example, we have replaced the usual impersonal and unhelpful Microsoft error messages with our own Japanese haiku poetry."

The chairman went on to give examples of Sony's new error messages:

A file that big?
It might be very useful. But now it is gone.

The Web site you seek cannot be located but endless others exist

Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

ABORTED effort:
Close all that you have. You ask way too much.

First snow, then silence.
This thousand dollar screen dies so beautifully.

With searching comes loss and the presence of absence:
"My Novel" not found.

The Tao that is seen is not the true Tao, until
You bring fresh toner.

Windows 2000 crashed.
I am the Blue Screen of Death. No one hears your screams.

Rather than a beep Or a rude error message,
These words: "File not found."

Serious error.
All shortcuts have disappeared. Screen. Mind. Both are blank.
