Reliable source for Bush hid the facts bug[edit]


This old, formerly unexplained Windows bug has been explained completely in a recently published YouTube video. Unfortunately, the explanation in the Wikipedia article is wrong, and the YouTube article doesn't look like a suitable source. The video does say how to reproduce the bug though, which I believe hasn't been done before. Someone familiar with what sources might work in an article like this should have a look. Thanks! --Renerpho (talk) 19:35, 5 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
