    Halatang mga windows boys kayo ah. If you guys started using PCs back in the DOS era - you'll recall kung pano gumawa ng batch files (such as autoexec.bat) using "copy con <filename.bat>" command.

    Obviously, it was a reserved word. Much like forward or backward slash - meron silang "function".

    Edit: Mods should change the thread title to "Amazing how people think that DOS commands are Windows bugs!"

    Actually, this CON issue is no big deal to me. My concern is the claim that "the whole Microsoft Team, including Bill Gates" doesn't know about it. This is the portion of the story which made this thread "supposed to be" a big deal.

    So where did you read about this "claim"? Are you telling us that eversince DOS era, that this "bug" hasn't been discovered?


    Might want to read this site so you'll have an idea about basic DOS file naming and what-nots.

    Are you saying you believe everything people post on forums? Is that your basis for facts?
