Futurama "Windows 3000" joke

It's no secret that Matt Groening is an Apple fan, as plenty of references and jokes have made their way into episodes of his Simpsons and Futurama shows. While watching my favorite segment of TV last night - [adult swim] - I thought a Futurama episode (titled "Bendin' in the Wind") cracked a nice knee-slap of a joke on Windows. Sure, the episode might have originally aired way back in 2001, but this is the first time I've ever caught the joke - sue me.

A clown robot visits a mangled, hospitalized Bender and tries telling a few jokes to cheer him up. One is: "Did you hear why they're using Windows 3000 as a prison guard? Because it always locks up!" Cute.
