Dear Consumas:

It has come ta our attention dat a coupola copies of the WINDOWS XP/PROVIDENCE EDITION may have accidentally bin shipped outsida Providence. If ya got one a dese, you may need some help understandin' da commands.

Da Providence edition may be recognized by da unique openin' screen. It reads:

"WINDAS XP," wit a background picture of Federal Hill. When you start da program, instead of da usual "harpy, stringy" music, you hear da theme from da Godfadda. It is also shipped wit a Sopranos screen sava.

Please also note:

Recycle Bin is labeled "RI-ACI."

My Computer is called "My Friggin' Computa."

The Inbox is referred to as "Da Trunk."

Deleted Items are referred to as "Wacked," "Erased," or "Rubbed Out."

Dial up Networking is called "Da Bar."

Control Panel is known as the "Da Bosses."

Performin' an "illegal operation" is known as "enhancin' the family business" and will actually maximize da program instead of shuttin' it down.

Hard Drive is referred to as "Da I95 Rush Hour." (For you rednecks the I95 is the Providence-I95 Expressway, Providence's idea of a highway. With all the potholes it's more like a minefield.)

Instead of an error message a "You ain't gonna friggin' believe dis!" pops up.

Its a fake...theres nothing there about Quahogs or driving on the sidewalk. Most (99.999%) RIers have never been outside of RI much less the town where they were born. (The rest of the country is (should be) happy about this.) Its like a 3rd world country inside the US.
