I've always liked the Windows joke, and would be said to see it go.  
That being said, I understand that you don't necessarily want to insult 
and alienate an entire user group.  I'd support having a little jab at 
the environment that Forge is running in at start-up.  It gives it a bit 
of a character.

However, I do understand if it's something that needs to be killed =(.
