Check this link and see the defect on microsoft portal itself.
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/9series/server.aspx
After sometime they will fix this problem. Look at it ASAP.
Or if you are able to find the attached image with this thread , Just look at it.

Is this supposed to be funny just because there's an error on a Microsoft website and you expect Microsoft to never show any errors? Or is there some funny error message that I'm overlooking?

Every one likes to bash MSFT...
So why jumping in joy if it is an error in the OS?

Anyway, errors on Microsoft.com are about as rare as feathers on a chicken.

I don't see anyone jumping in joy. The original poster simply finds it surprising. Everyone else seems to find it unremarkable, and wonders what the fuss is about.

John: Ah, that. How much clearer when people indicate who they're replying to. I agree, that part of the reaction makes little sense to me either.

Hm. So this is just a case of "Oh, wow, an error on a Microsoft website! How spectacular!"

Well, this is Meaningless Drivel after all...

I thought bashing Microsoft was old hat these days. Isn't it more fashionable to go for Apple/Google/Oracle?

I mean to say google.com does not have that many pages as microsoft.com have.
Less chances to find bugs on google.com
