Stupid dialog of the day

And a prime example of corporate stupidity. I am sure that somebody at Microsoft must have pointed out that "Stop" is hardly the best choice of label here when the user wants to "Safely Remove Hardware". "Stop" a memory stick ? Huh ??? But that somebody's manager's manager will not have seen any political capital to be made from changing it to something sensible...
