My Theory

Is that Microsoft outsourced the job of writing progress indicators to a trained hamster.

Which died in 1982.

And has yet to be replaced.

3 haha, I agree... The progress bar is really just a general guide rather than an absolute. The funnies tthing is when the progress bar makes great progress until its about 85% of the way through then slows down to a crawl. Talk about snatching defeat from the jaws of victory

4 Actually, the funniest thing is when a progress bar goes *backwards*, which I've seen a few times.  "Oops, sorry, didn't mean to copy that there."
