Microsoft surely must have enjoyed having millions of people type "win" every time they launched Windows. See Windows 3.0.

(3) (WIN) (Wireless Intelligent Network) A control system for cellular phone networks. Also known as IS-41 and ANSI-41, WIN and EDGE were key elements in the UWC-136 initiative. See UWC Consortium.
