Many others here.

* Customer: “How much do Windows cost?”
* Tech Support: “Windows costs about $100.”
* Customer: “Oh, that’s kind of expensive. Can I buy just one window?”

* Tech Support: “What version of Windows do you have installed?”
* Customer: “… Double glazed.”

Overheard in a software shop:
* Woman #1: “What this Linux thing?”
* Woman #2: “It’s a program that if you have it on your computer, you can’t turn the computer off.”
* Woman #1: “Oh.”

For my work-study job, I work tech support at a small college. One night I was working Help Desk and the phone rings. I pick it up to have a student telling me she can’t get the computer to work.
* Me: “What operating system are you running?”
* Student: “Hunh?”
* Me: “Do you have a Mac or a PC?”
* Student: “Um, I don’t know.”
* Me: “Ok. What does the screen look like?”
* Student: “It’s yellow.”
* Me: “Ok. What does it say on the computer CPU?”
* Student: “What’s that?”
* Me: “The big grey box.”
* Student: “It doesn’t say anything.”
* Me: “Never mind that…do you have a little ‘Start’ button at the bottom of the monitor?”
* Student: “Monitor?”
* Me: “The thing that looks like a TV sceen sitting on the grey box.”
* Student: “Oh! That! No. No start button.”
* Me: “Ok. Is there a little apple symbol anywhere on the screen?”
* Student: (very puzzled) “Why would I have fruit on my computer?”
