Oh boy, we're leaving such a mess behind for the future archaeologists...
"'Windows firewall'? What do they mean with that, it makes no sense."
"A wall of fire with windows in it..?"
"No, we researched it for a decade, and the best we could come up with is that it's a small computer connected to a bigger one which does something the big one could do, but doesn't do well enough."
"And what has that do with windows and firewalls?"
"Part of the software running on the big machine is named 'Windows', you don't want to hear what a firewall does."
"Really? Come on.."
"Well, they had a nice thing which would connect all the machines they have together, as far as we know all firewalls do is hampering those connections."
"So they made a device that makes another device function less effective, and named it after software running on the other machine?"
"Pretty much, and it's a damn expensive thing too."
"That doesn't make any sense at all, no wonder that civilisation perished."
"Yeah, they'd must have marketing."
