North Korea Upset With Microsoft, Missile Test Delayed By Windows 8

In an announcement by North Korea’s official news agency, it was reported that the military’s planned missile test had to be put on hold due to “problems with Windows 8”.

Intelligence analysts have said that the announcement gave “rare insight” to the inner workings of North Korea’s missile program—which have been running on Windows 95, until last year.


The missile test has to be on hold indefinitely, until the problem has been resolved. Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) states that the military will be “working with Windows 8 support to resolve the issue”.

However, it seems like Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un is not pleased about the situation and is considering a number of options—including declaring war on Microsoft.

JUST KIDDING!—this satirical report was taken from The New Yorker, which pokes fun at the rising tension between the US and North Korea.
