Now THAT takes talent!

CCP releases update for popular EVE Online game that kills Windows XP computers.

The update reportedly deletes the boot.ini file from the system drive. Boot.ini is a system file that tells the Windows loader where your Operating System is installed.

This is a very important file. It is also rather difficult to delete accidentally. You have to override system level security to delete that file. It can be done, but it takes a deliberate set of steps to do it.

So WTF were the programmers at CCP thinking? How can they be so stupid?

Amazing, simply amazing.
