Re: Error messages

"Many error messages (even in Windows) tell you exactly what you need to do to solve the problem at hand. Instead of heeding the message to reboot, add paper to printer, enter a missing value where the glaring red line of text tells them to, they call our (only slightly less clueless) helpdesk."

To be fair the users probably have difficulty distinguishing between these error messages and the huge number that don't.
