An Indian discovered that nobody can create a FOLDER anywhere named as "con".
This is something pretty cool...and unbelievable... At Microsoft the
whole Team, including Bill Gates, couldn't answer why this happened!

Try it out yourself...

Tried it for W2K, W2KServer, W2KAdvancedServer:
You cannot create a folder named "con" anywhere.

Really strange,

[I'm in a program failure/client pressure crisis right now - tip to
come later on :)]
