You should have rickrolled us.

I'm disappointed.

EFG,

I thought about doing the Rick Astley thing, but in the end decided on something more, um, topical.  Then, kidd posted something much better than my link, so I just left it.

These days, whenever I see http://www.youtube.com=etc.etc., half the time it's a rickroll.

Fortunately Google Video is relatively free of that problem.

Here's a video of Steve Ballmer announcing the release of Windows Vista Ultimate under the GPL, after which Ballmer invites Richard Stallman onto the stage and hugs him.
