Matlab WTF

Got this image when my Matlab project threw an exception. Looks pretty spooky to me... Especially since I was processing a completely different image!

The RealWTF is Windows Vista.

Ooooh, clever.
The real WTF is that you can't think of anything useful to contribute.

That's a picture of one of the founders from when he was a kid. That's sort of an easter egg in matlab. There used to be a ton of easter eggs like that in matlab but most of them have been removed.

TRWTF is that you've got Matlab 7 running in Vista.... Tell me how! It crashes with exceptions from swing when I try to run it in Vista .

If you think that face is freaky, how about this one?

Yeah, it's just an easter egg.
My favorite one is typing why in the prompt. It used to always give an answer. There's tons of easter eggs in matlab.
I guess the real wtf is that you're using matlab. I hated it.

That's Matlab 2007b which is Vistacompatible. I've also used r2006a and although it had some bugs it just ran without modifying anything.
