A photograph of a counterintuitive Windows 11 indicator.

Today I noticed that on Microsoft Windows 11 the Bluetooth indicator lights up when it is not connected.

Itʼs like nobody in Redmond has ever used a light switch.

Microsoft is using Start Me Up, a Rolling Stones song from 1981, to introduce is flagship operating system in 1995.

I'm not sure if that's ironic or prophetic.

Perhaps it's an admission that Windows is 14 years behind OS/2.
